No offset for overpaid benefit
Court of Appeal
“Where payments of disability living allowance had been suspended for overpayment and a redetermination made, payments subsequently awarded could not be offset against the irrecoverable overpayment, since the amount of payments would vary depending on how long it took for the redetermination to be reached.”
