Without an understanding of what the deductions you mention in your post are, I can't say whether your payments will be put back to an automatic status. All I can suggest is that you contact the DWP for an explanation of what is going on.

Many congratulations on the SG award, well done.

Social fund loan just revived in bank 26 Oct
Yes thanku for your guides and forum
I followed your guides word to word
So manual payment was made today for payment Friday why has this happen could it be that dwp did not action payment after deductions of loan maybe just get a bit paranoid!!! Does this happen often or just a admin error on two
Kind regards

If you have told them that your savings now exceed either the £6000 or £16,000 limit then your payments are likely to be suspended until they are able to confirm exactly how mush money you have.

It may have been a part payment the normal payment system cannot cope with this.
