If you think you're receiving too much Housing Benefit you need to tell us, as you may have to pay it back.
We can recover overpayments by:
- asking your employer to operate a Direct Earnings Attachment (deducting directly from your wages)
- deducting directly from any ongoing benefit entitlement
- deducting directly from other social security benefits
- receiving a payment from you
