I've noticed that a few people (including myself) have queries relating to local authority and benefits eg; housing benefit, council tax etc. and we are posting them under the general consumer section.

 

Would it be possible to have a new section relating to local authority issues or benefits as they seem to be seperate issues from general consumer ones?

 

It might then be easier for someone with knowledge of these issues to find us and offer help.

 

Many thanks

Hi from izzyheskint this makes for interesting reading,

DWP - Resource centre - Information for local authorities - Publications - Guidance and manuals - HB/CTB Overpayments Guide

i have been over paid HB to the sum of £1,800 the council have admited they made the mistake by not including my working tax credit in my HB claim, this claim was made in january 2005 they informed me of this mistake in November 2006. The council now use what they call data match and that's how they noticed this. I am disputing this.

 

Quote- Powys county council Letter

Although we made the error the benefit law says that we can ask for the money back However the law also says that this can only be done in certain circumstances. the point that we must look at is whether you could reasonably have been expected to realize that an overpayment was taking place.

 

As for a section on local authority and benefits i think someone has to start a thread for this, I am new to this site and still finding my way around
