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

Receiving the so called debt almost 4years later and close to Christmas also having to then fight it has been nothing but unecessary and uneeded stress. And a matter that many Australians should not be incurring

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

Very very wrong, Centrelink was given all my correct information everything matches and this is back up by my records and the tax office. The debt team is rude, they do not listen, they are quick to say the debt was my fault and they questioned as to why I wanted an appeal

I know my situation and what I did back then. The debt team are treating people like criminals without even looking into the matter correctly
