Reply To: WURTI and Debt recovery.


We had a letter from Paul Selby HDD dated 19 Sept addressed to LA Rev & Ben managers which mentioned HB Debt Service Project that would be offered from March 2018

It sounds like we will be able to use this to undertake debt recovery action There are few other details but

 'A new service at no cost to LA ' and goes on to explain

'This involves matching Housing Benefit debtor information with real time personal and employment data from HMRC. This data is to be made available for local authorities to undertake debt recovery action.

We will be writing out to all local authorities in due course with further information on the results of the Private Beta and more detailed plans for implementation of the interim tool for recovery of debt stock'.
