Martin Lewis has revealed how in just five minutes you can claim back thousands of pounds.

The MoneySavingExpert says people across the country may have had their money wrongly taken from them.

Martin has already revealed his 13 tips and tricks to see if you could be owed £1000s. 

Here are some of his top hacks from student loans to council tax repayments.

For example, if you've ever paid a monthly fee for your bank account, you may be able to reclaim some of your money.

Stephen told Martin: "Thank you. After reading your reclaim packaged bank accounts article I did what you said and three days later had £4,500 credited to my account."

Other tips include:

Tax back on PPI

If you got a PPI payout you can claim the tax back.

Geoff tweeted: "@MartinSLewis thanks for your advice on claiming a tax refund that was deducted from my PPI claim. Just received £300 from joint claim. Didn't know HMRC could act so fast."

Marriage tax allowance

If you're married you can back claim up to five years of marriage tax allowance.

John told Martin: "After reading your marriage tax allowance article I realised a simple task had not been done. My wife applied online that day.

"Amazement, received a cheque issued the next day for £902. Thank you, and thanks HMRC for a 24hr response."

Mis-sold payday loans

Some customers may have been mis-sold a payday loan they couldn't afford to repay as the lender didn't check their finances properly.

If so, you may be able to reclaim £100s or even £1,000s.

Ricky tweeted: "@MoneySavingExp @MartinSLewis I filed some reports for 'irresponsible lending' following advice from you guys and have managed to get £2,400 back. Incredible, thanks so much for what you all do."

Student loans

Many students across the UK started paying their student loan back too soon.

Clare emailed Martin: "Thanks for your student loan reclaiming article. My boyfriend and I received nearly £200 each for a 5-min phone call."        

Council tax refund           

Tens of thousands of 'severely mentally impaired' people who are entitled to a council tax discount could be missing out on about £400 a year.

Catherine told Martin: "Thank you for highlighting the council tax refund for those with dementia. I've just applied on behalf of my mother and over £7,000 is being refunded.

"Nobody from any agency had ever mentioned this, so I am very happy to have read your emails."
