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

I got this debt a few years ago and they reckon I owed them money because at the time I was on parenting payment partnered n they said my partner earned 60000 in 2 years n I stated less... but my partner at that time was on sickness benefit for almost a year waiting for surgery so he couldn't have enered that. I tried to tell them this but they said no not right... it's left me with this huge debt, now a single mother of 6 it's really hard n stressful

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

they always think they r right about it all... soon as they owe u money or anything they take forever to pay it but if u owe them they want it straight away.
