    I reported a change in income-approx £500 from 15/16 and when I logged in check my next payment which is about £19 less per week now.
    I assume I had renewed at the same time but I really cant guess as the website does not make this clear.
    There are no other changes.

    I know you wont have my specifics but any ideas how they would arrive a such a drastic drop in amount based on reporting such a small reduction in income

    Thanks as usual for your help
