DWP recovering benefits when someone dies

Recommended Posts

Posting as an information share, not something I need help with, as this comes up on CAG from time to time.

 

When I've been an Executor I've received letters from the DWP asking me to repay to DWP any pension etc benefits they paid out after the date the person died. I always assumed the DWP had the legal power to recover that money. Turns out they never did and I could have ignored their requests!  [But note this does not apply if the DWP had overpaid benefits before the person died. DWP might be entitled to recover those.]
