Overpayments – Prioritising recovery of Housing Benefit

HBINFO is delighted to offer a workshop half day on "overpayments – improving recovery".

The introduction of Universal Credit has seen a large legacy debt owed to local government. HB overpayments may not be able to be recovered from Universal Credit payments automatically and of course there will be no Housing Benefit left to deduct from for working age cases. With over £1.75 billon outstanding in Housing Benefit debt, this is likely to be a major concern for local authorities. Even so, this is significantly lower than the huge tax credit debt.

We will discuss how Covid has affected recovery and what next. Focusing on latest issues; recovery from UC and employers. The latest on bankruptcy and changes to Debt relief orders and many other topical issues relevant to HB recovery.

Fees  are £120 per delegate, £220 for non-members,   

All courses start at 09.15 for a PROMPT 9.30 start and we aim to conclude at 13.15
