Overpayments under the Universal Credit system - What should I do if I think I have been overpaid?

Read our guide to overpayments under the Universal Credit system and what to do about them.

What should I do if I think I have been overpaid?

If you think you are being paid too much benefit you should tell the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) straight away. This is because the longer you leave it the more money you will have to pay back. 

If you aren’t sure if you are being paid too much benefit, you should talk to a benefits adviser. Use our tool to find an adviser near you
