The spring edition of our Social Security Law and Practice Bulletin has just been published and includes a summary of recent cases, news from our social security team, latest Northern Ireland Social Security legislation, training opportunities and new publications.
You can also meet Sarah Corrigan, who joined Law Centre NI recently as Director of Innovation and Engagement – a new role within the organisation introduced as part of our continuing growth and development as the regional Law Centre in Northern Ireland.
Read more about our campaign calling for changes to the recovery of benefit overpayments caused by official error.
We are asking the Department for Communities to:
- Amend forthcoming staff guidance to encompass a test of ‘unfairness arising from official error’.
- Improve claimants’ awareness of Discretionary Waiver.
- Improve data collection.
