Reply To: Overpayments created by NTC awards

martin walmsley


Are you inputting the NTC award back to the start of the payment cycle (e.g. weekly, or 4-weekly), then making any o/p irrecoverable as DE?

Re case 3 ex 1 – I understand the o/p period to be 7/4/03-27/4/03 due to the 4-week payment cycle. The NTC payment for this period is “payment in arrears” not “of arrears”. The amount of o/p is then made irrecoverable as Departmental Error. It also appears this provision with regard to o/p’s created to payment cycles will continue to be treated in this way (i.e. DE).
