Housing Benefit and Council Tax Support Overpayments

Overpayments usually happen if we are given the wrong information when a claim is made or we are told too late about a change in circumstances.

Most overpayments are recoverable, which means you have to pay the money back. It is therefore very important that you make sure you give us correct information and that any changes are reported to us as soon as possible so we can avoid an incorrect rate of benefit being awarded.
