If you were originally assessed as having a surplus of £300 there must have been a change in circumstances which means you can no longer afford this. I do know that both Payplan and CCCS use the common financial statement and this - if all the facts are given correctly - leaves the surplus that is deemed suitable for each individual.
Have you not contacted your case officer in Payplan as if not it is important that you do so. If you are not earning as much they will be able to revise your budget accordingly or advise on bankruptcy if your income is not going to increase in the short to medium term.
If you are not earning - as you stated in your earlier thread - then you would not have a surplus of £300 to offer the Official Receiver. He would go through a budget sheet with you and you should put down what you spend. He will, of course, want to see payslips, rent books or letter from Mum confirming your rent and other utility bills but if you are on SSP and pension there will be nothing to pay.
Let us know how you get on.
