answer text <p>The Department seeks to recover benefit overpayments as quickly as possible without creating any undue financial hardship to the claimant. The initial rate of repayment applied for the recovery of a benefit overpayment is calculated based on three factors:</p><p> </p><ul><li>How the overpayment occurred (through either fraud or error).</li><li>Whether the claimant is in work.</li><li>Whether any other deductions are applied to their Universal Credit award which might affect the amount that can be deducted.</li></ul><p>The Department understands that claimants’ individual circumstances can vary widely. If a claimant contacts the Department to say that they cannot afford the proposed rate of repayment, we will discuss this with the claimant and can re-evaluate their repayment rate. This re-evaluation will be based on income and expenditure, alongside internal data and the industry standard credit information we can access, with the aim of agreeing a sustainable rate of repayment.</p> more like this
