had a client overpaid over £4000 UC . The nice man in my local job Centre looked on his screen and it seems that those cases that were passed through without proper ID checks in the first covid wave are now being trawled by a special UC hit squad to chase up ID that was not requested at the time of claim. My client did not respond quickly enough an his claim was stopped and all the retrospective award is being clawed back on a deduction from earnings order, both client and his partner are having deductions from their wages to repay this £4000. Also the clients asked for an MR back in April as confirmed by my friend in JCP and UC never responded to the MR request !!!
see thread on UC retrospective verification, this issue above seems to be the outcome of work of The Repair Team
