Undisclosed Partners: Recovery of Overpayment for cases opened before 17 May 2007 - Calculating the Settlement Figure
To arrive at your settlement figure you need to calculate -
a. the gross overpayment - see CCM15510
b. the notional entitlement - see below
c. the net overpayment which is the gross overpayment in (a) less the notional entitlement in b.
d. whether there is to be a penalty - see CCM15575
The method of settlement will depend on whether or not there is a penalty.
The amount of the notional entitlement will depend on the following circumstances of the case:-
- If the partner is still living with the customer - see CCM15530.
- If the partner is no longer living with the customer - see CCM15545.
- If there has been a claim by a couple when they should have claimed as two single customers - see CCM15560.
- If both the customer and the partner had made a claim as single customers - see CCM15565.
