Financial Hardship

How do you prove you are in financial hardship, have listed income - listed? only one income - and listed all outgoings - income does not even cover basics - but been told I am not in financial hardship - Am I missing something? Any help greatly appreciated.

    Probably not.

    As you have been informed you are not in financial hardship, it appears whoever informed you probably had sufficient information to make that decision.

    There's a sticky that on financial hardship online resources with lots of good links that explains what financial hardship is all about.
