I'm really stressed at the moment

There was a point where I wasn’t updating the benefit teams of my savings.

One day they called me and asked about if I had savings and I told them.

Then they asked for a time line of my savings

And that’s where I made mistakes with writing down how much savings i had in the past two years from 2017 to 2019. And even after they warned me, I still wasn’t taking the rules very strictly, just sort of updating them when I felt my savings probably went up significantly. 2019, and then recently again, they sent me a letter which questioned my savings record, I had made a mistake.

2020,I started taking it very seriously and updating them every single days amount, for each account,

I’m probably in trouble now.

I don’t know I feel so crap.

It is just venting I don’t really want to talk about it.

I hope the consequences are not too serious.

I hope they let me know within a month or so but things are slow at the moment.

I feel so awful.

I mean one form of consequences could maybe be that they could stop me having benefits for certain amount of years and if I start working now and then covid puts me out of job I’ll have nothing to fall on to not even my parents as they’ll be living in a smaller house.
This is sort of the jist of what’s been happening.
I know I’ve not been very clever or sensible.
I have been careless.
Moral of the story

Always read your benefits guideline rules properly including consequences if they are not followed.

I hope I’m not prosecuted.

I really learnt my lesson from this.


I hope you will be Allright. Don’t fret. There isn’t much you can do. Take care.

I’m going to fast for a few days that usually makes me feel better.

Just a personal choice.

I’ve been so careless.


Something else that could happen is that I have to pay an overpayment over time.

I hope it’s not too much.

Whatever happens, I have learnt the lesson.

I Guess that they will investigate and will decide whether you were entitled to the benefit. Sounds like a fair process. At least you have some savings. You’ll be fine.

Yea it is fair I guess. :woman_shrugging: Just scary.

I definitely did not reach or pass the amount of savings where they stop your benefits (£16000) but still,

It is serious.

I might take a break from the forum. I think people don’t like me right now.

It’s just how I feel.

Not sure if I can last off the forum though if I go ahead with that.

It’s not nice sometimes being around people who you feel don’t like you

Yeah I get the feeling too sometimes. I like you.

Whether you decide to stay or not…

Stay strong :blush:

Sorry to hear you get that feeling too sometimes

It’s not a pleasant feeling sometimes…

But it’s life just gotta accept and understand not everyone will necessarily like me

No not at all :roll_eyes:

Just keep doing your thing

Even if I feel someone doesn’t like me, without clear direct proof but it’s how I feel, sometimes it hurts so I just stay away from that nonsense

It’s not good to live in too much pain


I know that a couple people on this forum don’t like me…but I don’t really care myself. They are in the minority I think.

It’s so easy to jump to conclusions about people sometimes.

Still if someone causes me a lot of pain or stress, I don’t like them.
