DWP Recoveries

News from the DWP Debt Management Recovery team. It is suspending all collections of over-payments of welfare benefits, including Child and Working Tax Credits, if their collection is administered by them.
You do not have to apply, as it will be done automatically, but if you pay by standing order or bank giro credit, then you need to cancel these.
As well as suspending current overpayment recovery, the DWP has also stated that it will be suspending any recovery proceedings against newly identified customers whose benefits have been overpaid.
