Housing and Council Tax Benefit
When we give you too much benefit, we call it an 'overpayment'. If we give you too much benefit, we will send you a letter.
The letter we send you will tell you:
- why we gave you too much benefit
- how much the overpayment is
- if you have to pay back the amount
- how you can appeal if you think this is wrong
In most cases we will send you a revised Council Tax bill, and you will usually have to pay more Council Tax.
