Cases needed – Advance payment recovery at 30% of standard allowance

I am looking for UC claimants who applied for an advance payment which is now being recovered from their UC payments at a rate exceeding 15% of their standard allowance.

Recovery of such payments at a rate of 30% appears to be standard practice. CPAG intends to challenge this in judicial review proceedings as the UC Regulations set a maximum recovery rate of 15% of the standard allowance.

If you are working with a client who is in this position and would be happy to be involved in judicial review proceedings, please obtain their consent to share details and contact me at LDalton at cpag dot org dot uk

Thank you.
