Debt Management repayment plan
Hi, sorry if this is in the wrong catagory.My mother has been sent a letter saying that her mother was overpaid a sum amount while she was alive. Becuase she (Her mother) went into hospital and didnt tell DWP. Anyway to cut a long story short. The amount is not huge and My mother wants to set up a re-payment plan with the DWP Debt Management team. Will the DWP Debt Management team want to see bank statments and other documents to set up the re-payment plan? Or will the DWP Debt Management team and My mother just agree on a monthly amount that she can afford. She does get Pension credit, only a few hundred per month. Thanks
