Carer's Allowance Overpayments - Policy Briefing

16 May 2019

The Work and Pensions Select Committee in Parliament is carrying out an Inquiry into the Overpayment of Carer’s Allowance. Having taken evidence from Carers UK in November, including evidence from carers, the National Audit Office carried out an investigation into overpayments of Carer’s Allowance. The result of this investigation was published on 26 April 2019.

Carers UK has put forward robust evidence for the need for change and made a series of recommendations that we would like to see DWP take up.
