Recoverable Hardship payment, repayment rules

The request was successful.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

I am interested in Recoverable Hardship Payment debt and the rules around it's recovery.

Advice for Decision makers states:
"L1161 When recoverable hardship payments cease and sanctions no longer apply to the claim, the total amount paid to the claimant or joint-claim couple is recoverable.
1 UC Regs, reg 119 ; 2 RUC Regs, reg 108
Note: For full guidance on the recovery of hardship payments see the Debt Management Guide). "

I would be grateful to receive the current version of the Debt Management Guide referred to, and any other relevant guidance or rules relating to the recovery of Hardship Payments given to Jobcentre staff or Debt collection agencies.

Yours faithfully,

Paul Morrison
