Hi all!

Since the arrival of my son we are using a lot more energy than before, who would have guessed? Bills go up when you have a child :D

Well, thing is I'm building too much debt but PP hasn't adjusted my DD.

Can I request a DD adjustment? I just don't want see that debt going up every month and then one day I have to pay it all in one go.

Anyone can advise?

hi gab Just a suggestion, in my opinion you'd be far better increasing the dd and not making a one-off payment, just divide the 140 by 6 or 12 (or over however long you intend to pay it back to cover the debt) and add to the amended dd . (your cashflow will be better too). I'm not too surprised that it hasn't been picked up you're probably about one payment behind. You can keep an eye on the dd and amend again in 12 months.

hi gab, hows the little one doing?
In your case I'm tempted to say put the money away every month and wait to see who cracks first!... but I know you need to tick it off the list.
Out of curiosity how much debt has built up after the dd has been taken?

Hi gab.
Glad you are enjoying parenthood.
Just go onto the wattbot message the team and ask to increase your DD by £ (insert amount) per month to cover your increased usage. I have done it several times on my accts.

Hi Gabolino, great to see you’re on top of things - I hope your getting some sleep & the family are all well. My daughter is going through the same baby phase, sleep deprivation & higher outgoings, but well worth it.
​Take care. 👍👍
Hi @Gabolino

The reply from @woz is spot on. Message our team to request that your DD is increased slightly.
Then it can be reviewed again in six months or so 🆙
