Good afternoon, first time poster here! I received a letter from my local JC today to attend a compliance meeting. It states:

"We need to talk to you about some changes that may affect your benefits payments."
It sounds really serious, says that I must be available for this interview and asks me to bring ID, statements and payslips.
Has anybody ever received this?

I've been in my current job for 6 months, I work part time, pro-rata salary, and I also have a separate contract for bank staff which is 0 hrs and I get separate payslip for doing bank hours. I told them about this and they said that because it's from the same employer it would come from them to report extra earnings.

Last month I had a call to say that my employer didn't report my earnings which resulted in overpayment. I have read out figures on my payslip and ended up with a small debt which is unfortunate, but not the end of the world.

What could this interview be about? I've not got anything to worry about but im getting in a right state trying to figure it out! Please help!!

    It's impossible to answer that question. Ring the number on the letter and ask what it's about and they should tell you more information.

    There has been so many compliance threads recently too, I suggest reading those too.

    I have and she said she needs to see me face to face to discuss. I don't know if that was due to data protection?

    Unfortunately, people here could only guess what it's about.

    It really could be anything, I know that’s not very helpful for you. Very possibly the person on the phone wouldn’t tell you due to Data Protection, you could try calling again and see if you manage to get another person who would be a bit more helpful. My DH’s wages weren’t reported in April for an unknown reason but we haven’t received anything like that so not sure if it would be down to this. Are you claiming UC?
