    Hi 

    They do this if there has been any over payments of other benefits or any debts to recover 

    It doesn't always mean anything and if you have no debts to them nothing to worry about 

    But they sometimes find stuff from years ago or something you wasn't even aware of 

    You can really only wait to see or contact them

    You can challenge if they try to recover debt

    I have a child tax credit overpayment. So I’m guessing it will all go to that! Even though I’m arranging to pay it separately. That majorly sucks
