Reply To: Overpayments – Circular A13 2006


Can I ask what people are doing with regard to weekly reclaim for HB following the creation of an overpayment for example if someone reports a wage increase.

Should we be waiting a month before we start recovering the overpayment at £8.70 per week?

I guess we should be as they have right to appeal against the way we have calculated their wages and the date from which we have superceded the decision but it seems a little pointless if they have written in to say “my wages increased to £50.00 per week from the 01 June…)
