    Hi,

    I have no idea who told you that but it's not correct. I'm still paying mine back and will continue to do so until it's paid back. May i ask what benefit you're claiming?

    If you're claiming UC and it's an advance payment you're paying back then if this is causing extreme hardship then you can ask for it to be deferred for 3 months. If it's the old legacy benefits you're claiming then i'm not aware that a loan can be deferred.
