(With thanks to Alan)

Citizens Advice Policy Director Teresa Perchard notes how £17 billion of benefits and tax credits goes unclaimed due to the complexities (and hazards?) of the system. She also notes that tax credit system errors exceed fraud and is "very concerned at the government’s persistent tendency to roll fraud and error figures together".

Let's make sure our MPs know we are unhappy about this situation and how the blame for tax credit overpayments continues to be laid at the door of honest, compliant claimants rather than those running the "system"!

Thats absolutely shocking Ali, I looked at the link and couldn't belive what I was reading. Something has to be done! I'm trying to do my bit to raise awareness, but I'm new to the posting in forums thing and I've never campaigned for anything in my life. As this is a worthwhile cause I'll give it a go, just hope more people do the same.
