Reply To: Overpayments created by NTC awards

martin walmsley

From the way Case 3 ex 1 is worded in Amendment 8, it would appear it will be ongoing, quote, “…there is already an overpayment of 3 weeks…The Department’s view is that the customer is blameless so recovery cannot be sought…Overpayments arising from this retrospective attribution of NTC income will always receive 95% DWP subsidy whenever they arise, and they are not confined to the specified time limited period”.

But don’t quote ME on that!

Incidentally, the way you are classifying o/p’s from 7/4/03 seems fine for 4-weekly NTC awards, but what about weekly ones? – are you using “arrears of” as capital in the HB/CTB assessment?
