If you're overpaid Housing Benefit, you'll normally have to repay it.
We'll let you know:
- what your correct benefit amount is
- why you were overpaid
- the amount of the overpayment
- whether you have to pay it back
How to repay Housing Benefit if you've received an overpayment
We recover Housing Benefit overpayments by deductions from future payments, or by sending you a bill if your benefit has ended.
