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

Stress anguish. My son was told he had incurred a debt when he wasn't even registered to receive payments. Centrelink told him that the money must have gone into our (parents) bank account. He paid the bill as he doesn't need the stress.

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

They are doing anything to fix it, they are using this as a way to make money
