I was recently made redundant and have claimed my notice pay ( 3 weeks as I was employed for 3 years) when I was first made redundant universal credit gave me an emergency pandemic loan of 498.00. This is a loan and has started to be paid back . The redundancy company has deducted this 498.00 from my notice which basically equates to a years worth of notice which i worked hard for. Can they do this ?

    Then i would say that they will use part of that money to pay off the loan. Seems reasonable.

    They aren’t doing that though, I’m paying the loan back by direct debit

    Have you spoken to DWP and the insolvency service about this? I appreciate that sounds silly, but it doesnt make sense

    Is that not who is saying no? Sorry I’m really confused 
    universal credit who gave me the loan are saying nope, you are definitely paying it back to us which i totally get. They provided a loan so I pay back - fine
    i don’t understand why it needs to be deducted from my notice pay at all

    I mean - asked the insolvency service if this deduction will pay off the loan
