Tell us about your debt and how has this affected you? e.g. anxiety levels, financial and accommodation stress: 

Right before exam period approaches I get a letter to say I owe a mass amount of debt, absolute panic attack as I've never owed in my life and all of a sudden they want money in 14 days!

Requested a hold and a copy of DATA BREAKDOWN which allows you to verify what you reported so you can cross reference your pay.

How do you feel about the way the Government has handled this process?: 

Horrific, no compassion in understanding the mental health implications this causes.
