New amounts per month..

Wondering if anyone can shed any light on this.. I currently pay child maintenance via a deduction from my benefits £8.40 weekly.. received a text message from the child maintenance service stating; "We've reviewed your case and your new payment plan from 01/06/2021 will be £43.33 per Month. You don't need to call us - we will confirm this in writing" ... Why has it increased if my situation hasn't changed? It ends in August so not too fussed but it's still a jump in the amounts I'm used to paying..


  • It's ok I've worked it out myself.. my stepdaughter is now not a child anymore so that's why it's gone up slightly.. however I stick at £8.40 a week as that's all they can take apparently 🙄
