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

I had to report every 2 weeks , which I did with my pay slip, always, but they say there was an error

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

extremely poorly as I had no chance to prove it was not my fault, pay slips does not lie, they made a mistake maybe calculating my payments, I can not alter my pay slips.

it was years later and they expected me to prove I did nothing wrong
