Hi I am in the same situation, just been awarded on monday enhanced daily care and standard mobility, backdated to 31/01/2018.I am currently arguing with tax credits, who are claiming I had an overpayment of £11800 in 2011-2012, which I am disputing. I believe I owe about £300! Will my back payment go to debt management? Is there anyway I can get my backpayment, because I have been suffering massively these last two years, and want to repay my friends who have had to reduce working hours/being put out to support and care for me, when services were withdrawn due to lack of funding. Its not fair that this money may be taken to clear a debt that I dont agree I owe in the first place!
Hi @kirstyleigh.Congratulations on your PIP appeal win, sounds like it's been quite a wait!Your backdated PIP can't be used to cover tax credits overpayments, so you don't need to worry about that.
