Hello

 

I was informed that something called recovering from my job seekers allowance for industrial injujries benefit, I was told I was due to get some back pay now may loose it due to a recovery unit? Does this mean I will get no back pay now? Also I was wondering how it works for industrial injury benefit, I will be on 20 percent, I assume I will get half JSA and half industrial injury benefit, thanks

I'm not sure about this from your post - but it appears this may be an offset. If the JSA is income based, it will be affected by the amount of IIDB you have coming in. If the IIDB is payable for the same period of JSA, any backpayment of JSA would be offset against IIDB and will be in future payments also.

 

An example: a single person over 18 at 20% IIDB, would receive JSA of £65.45 plus IIDB of £29.16 per week. However the amount of IIDB would be subtacted from any amount of income based JSA, reducing his JSA payments to £36.29.

 

So in effect if you applied for JSA, say 4 weeks ago. The back pay would ordinarily be £261.80 (£65.45 weekly rate x4). But from the weekly amount they would take off the IIDB you received/were due for each week you were also due JSA. IIDB @ 20% = £29.16 per week. Multiply that by the four weeks = £116.64. This would reduce the back payment of JSA to £145.16.

 

That's a rough idea of how an offset would work for IIDB at 20% with income based JSA arrearages. Is that what you were looking for?

I think so,thanks. I assume the CRU certificiate i would only pay back IIDB if I was claiming the benefit of the time of the accident but I did not know anything about it till I came on here and I was accepted for IIDB in August 2010, my intiial accident settled on October 2009.

 

However I have a claim for occupational stress from February 2010, as I was forced out of my job, so I assume if that settles, my work stress in February 2010 which I understand can't be covered under IIDB; is a seperate matter to my work accident in July 2008, so I assume because my intiial accident settled before I got IIDB then I should not be affected with any CRU certificates, I did get one the time of the initial accident but I understand if I had IIDB during the time when that was going on I would have to but I will have to pay back JSA if I win my work stress claim from February 2010 as I have been on JSA since April 2010.

Hi I heard today it says We will pay you 20 percent rate a week fro xxx to xxx your arrears of benefit amounts to £962.28 however we have deducted a recovery of JSA of £237.45 giving you £724.83 - does this mean £724 as a lump sum or does that mean it will be until the next assessment e.g £724 divided or would I get 20 percent rate in addition, thanks

If the total arrears of benefits is 962.28 nad your IIDB is 20% (£29.16 per week) you have been waiting 33 weeks for your decision on IIDB?! My word - that's a long time.

 

Arrears is benefit money which is overdue as it hasn't been paid to you, a build up of due payments - it's the amount owed, so it will be in addition.
