Undisclosed Partners: Recovery of Overpayment for cases opened before 17 May 2007 - Example With Partner At The Date of Claim and Still Living With The Customer
The following is an example of notional entitlement where there was a partner at the date the claim was made and the partner is still living with the customer.
Katie made a claim as a single person on 6 August 2004 and this was not backdated. A 2004/2005 enquiry established she had been living with Nick at the date the claim was made. By 1 December 2005 you are able to terminate the award as of 6/8/2004. On the same day Katie and Nick make a claim as a couple and they backdate this 3 months to 1/9/2005.
The gross amounts overpaid between 6/8/2004 and 1/12/2005 are:-
|2004/2005 (6/8/2004 - 5/4/2005)||£7,160|
|2005/2006 (6/4/2005 - 1/12/2005)||£7,310|
Katie was able to provide details of Nick’s income and these agreed our records. Nick was not included in another claim. Had Katie and Nick made a claim as a couple at the correct time they would have received:-
|2004/2005 (6/8/2004 - 5/4/2005)||£4,985|
|2005/2006 (6/4/2005 - 31/8/2005)||£3,265|
Katie’s net overpayments are therefore:-
