18.104.22.168 RA Overpayments
This topic contains information on RA overpayments.
A RA overpayment can occur if a recipient fails to notify of a change in circumstances.
Example: These can include:
- change of residential circumstances including,
- change of address,
- rent amount variation,
- move to government housing,
- start/stop sharing their accommodation with others, OR
- change of relationship status.
In these cases, the recipient may continue to receive RA at a higher rate than they are entitled to, in which case a RA overpayment can be raised.
