    Ask the CSA for an account breakdown and request they provide you with your file from the data protection unit so you can investigate any errors or omissions.
    They are not allowed to make up any sums they must have some calculations if you have provided all the information they requested.
    If you do not provide information they can use interim assessments or default maintenance decisions all of which can be rectified at a later date if the correct information is supplied.
