i was claiming ctc for my three children as a lone parent then i started seeing someone and after a year or so i feel pregnant just before i was due to have my daughter he moved in so i canceled my claim for income support and as he wasn't working at the time we tried to start a claim for jsa which took some time as they said they didn't receive three forms we sent in (during this time i had our daughter) anyway the adviser at the job center had told us not to tell ctc just yet as we needed proof of jsa and my daughters birth certificate plus they would cancel it straight away meaning we would have to live on child benefit alone which at the time was for three children so it was impossible to live on that alone so we waited until we got the letter from jsa and after the baby was registered i then rang ctc and they stopped my claim there and then and sent out a new form which we completed and sent straight back this was 6 weeks after the changes but i stated in the form i needed the ctc backdated to my daughters dob and any money outstanding for the other three during the period of them canceling my lone claim and starting the joint one but after a couple of weeks my then partner finished the relationship so i rang ctc and told them the man on the phone said that they had received the joint claim but wouldn't process it instead they would wait for the new lone claim form they were sending out that day to be returned so i filled it out and sent it straight back including all the info on the changes and what money needed to be backdated and for what periods i then noticed they hadn't backdated any so i rang them and they said they wasn't sure if it could be backdated as by this time it had gone ova three months but the lady said she would pass it on to the manager and i'd receive a letter in due course i had the amended ctc letter showing the backdated amounts but i have now received a letter saying i owe them £1148.27 which i'm now not sure who's fault it is theirs or mine as i took me a little while to tell them of the changes but i did clearly state at least twice when it need to be backdated til and also who for but it looks like they backdated all the money to my daughters dob even though i told them it was just the baby that it needed to be backdated to that period for plus they would have seen on their computers that they had paid me for the other three for that period any ideas who's fault its classed as??? cheers
