    Hi I was just wondering if there is anyone else having issues with DWP asking for money back from tax credit overpayments even though it is already being paid from UC? I’ve paid over £1000 back so far and got 3 letters so far saying no payments been made. I’ve tried to ring them but just get passed around to places that can’t help

    Are the repayments you are making showing on your Universal Credit file?

    There is a payment that goes out from UC yes, it doesn’t state what the payment is for but that’s all it can be. I asked UC if they can confirm if it is for DWP but they won’t. They tell me to ring DWP and that’s where I get passed around. I paid for maybe 8-9 months then my UC stopped as my ex earned more money through COVID but at the same time DWP stopped collecting money throughout the pandemic. Me and my partner split, I had to reclaim again and my payments to DWP started again after 4-5 months.
