Reply To: Underlying Entitlement


I am still trying to get my head around this and Peter Barkers example has clarified what happens if we find out within 1 month of the overpayment decision being made.

However, if the information regarding the non-deps JSA had been received after 1 month from the revised overpayment decision would we have to consider whether they had good cause for not advising us within the 1 month timescale rules.

I am confused because UE is not an award of benefit and I therefore cannot see how the 1 month notification timescale applies.

My head hurts 🙁
