Housing Benefit Overpayment Direct Debit

What you will need to complete this form

  • The reference number on the top right hand side of your letter
  • The overpayment invoice number
  • The date the payment is collected every month and the month you would like to start the payments
  • The installment amount you would like to pay every month
  • Your bank details

Other important information

Please note that if you are still receiving Housing Benefit we will recover the overpayment by deducting a set amount each week from the amount you receive until you have cleared the overpayment. You do not need to fill in this form if this is the case.

If your Housing Benefit is paid directly to your landlord, you will need to pay extra rent to your landlord to make up the difference. Please discuss this with your landlord.

If you are not in receipt of Housing Benefit, we may apply for deductions from other benefits you receive.

If the overpayment is for Local Council Tax Support, we will automatically add the amount of the overpayment to your Council Tax account.

If you are not in receipt of any benefits, we will issue an invoice.
