    We have received ETD’s prior to 06/10/03 within no AIF figure, only savings credit identified and these have not been actioned by the authority. Am I correct in thinking that these cases are to be amended from the current benefit week when a revised ETD is received resulting in no overpayment

    We’re having the same problem. The Pension Service asked us not to ring them in the first week so we planned to fax requests for a breakdown of the AIF. We’re now been told to wait for the scan disk on 23OCT03!!

    We want to input SC from the date we receive the breakdown of the AIF, hence creating no overpayment, but the regs seem to indicate that because we have the SC figure already it would have to be input now and create an overpayment. But how can we input the SC amount when we don’t know the AIF?

    Surely, the whole idea was not to create pensioner overpayments but the DWP obviously expected everything to run smoothly, and not made a provision for when we get half the info, but not all.

    Anyone any ideas yet, or a contact in the DWP whom we can contact for clarification


    I was at a meeting of Greater Manchester authorities last Friday, and a member there raised the same issue. The general consensus was that the claims should be input from the date we get the scan, as that is the first date we will have all the necessary information. It has been made quite clear by the DWP, it seems to me, that no HB overpayment should be created where the delay is in getting information from The Pension Service.
