    PPI refund 14th Jun 19 at 7:11 AM
    I have just had a letter saying I am getting a PPI refund
    Of just over £1000 they have deducted tax from the payment i donít earn enough to pay tax? I am also in receipt of Universal Credit will the DWP class this as income and reduce my payment or will it be classed as savings ?
    Lastly do I have to inform DWP of this payment ?

    Thanks for any replies

    Contact HMRC to get the tax refunded

    I think this will be treated as capital. If your total capital remains below £6000 it will make no difference to your UC. However I can’t find anything specific in Advice to Decision Makers. Perhaps another poster will be able to find definite information.
