Repaying a housing benefit overpayment

Housing benefit invoices are due in full, one month from the date the invoice is issued.

If you have any queries about your invoice or require further information, or if you think you won't be able to pay in full, you should contact the Corporate Collection Team before the invoice is due for payment.

If you are having difficulties with money you can ask us about options to pay by instalment.

Please be aware that for all arrangements to pay by instalment, the amount of your monthly/weekly instalments has to be accepted by the corporate collection team. In certain circumstances you may be asked to complete a  breakdown of income and expenditure form [171kb].

If you disagree with the overpayment and wish to have the decision reconsidered please contact the housing benefit contact centre on 0300 123 1384.
