    I tried to post this a few minutes ago but I don’t think I was successful. So if this appears twice, my apologies!
    We’ve just received several hundred ETD’s via the RAT belatedly informing us of the uprated savings credit figures and AIF’s from April.
    Can we load them from Monday following date of receipt where the HB/CTB goes down or do we have to input the new figures from beginning of April and create overpayments. What are others doing please? ❓

    The uprated amounts can be input wef 1/4/04 or 5/4/04 as applicable.

    Overpayments are to be created and as long as they are processed by 30th April they are to be classed as Dept error. see circular A20/04

    Sorry but I don’t agree the following is an extract from the guidance I issued and assumes all work is done by 30/04/04. Don’t forget that Overpayments are [b:a0dfab22a0]not [/b:a0dfab22a0]created where we are told late by TPS, the DWP error provisions only apply as outlined below:

    [b:a0dfab22a0]Processing: [/b:a0dfab22a0]

    [b:a0dfab22a0]16 April Scan[/b:a0dfab22a0]

    The scan might include more than one entry per customer:

    Eg 02/01/04 AIF £120.00 SC £15.00
    12/04/04 AIF £125.00 SC £16.00

    IF we hold the correct details at 02/01/04 BUT need to input the april uprated figure we would only insert it with an effective date of 16/04/04, that might create an overpayment for the period 19/04/04 to the date of input and in such cases the OP must be classified as DWP ERROR.

    IF we hold incorrect details at 02/01/04 BUT the details we do hold mean that the customer is getting less benefit than they should have been then the correct details must be input from 02/01/04, you will then need to input the uprated figure from 16/04/04 and classify any OP from 16/04/04 onwards as DWP ERROR.

    IF we hold incorrect details at 02/01/04 BUT the details we do hold mean that the customer is being overpaid DO NOT INPUT any of the details on the scan relating to the period 02/01/04 to 15/04/04 DO INPUT the uprated figure from 16/04/04 and treat any OP as DWP ERROR.

    [b:a0dfab22a0]February Scan[/b:a0dfab22a0]

    The only difference here is that we were notified of the Uprating before the 01/04/04 BUT we may not have had time to uprate the case before April.

    In such cases the uprated figure will be input from 01/04/04 AND any OP relating to the period between 01/04/04 and 30/04/04 will be classified as DWP ERROR.
