Reply To: Direct payments


95 and 96 order and permit deviations from the general rule in 94 by paying LL direct. The amendments to these regs by SI 2868/2007 don’t appear to restrict the application of 94(3).

Could have a bit of an impact on DWP’s stated aims to encourage personal responsibility and financial inclusion though, so I am sure (nearly) that there is a good reason somewhere for not doing it!
