8.7.4 Some overpayments not recoverable from DFISA arrears

8.7.4.1Adjusted disability pension (adjusted DP) is included as income in assessing social security payment. Therefore, the payment of arrears of adjusted DP may lead to both a social security income support overpayment and to arrears of DFISA. This may affect both the person and their partner. Where the partner has an overpayment, that overpayment is, to the extent possible, to be recovered from the veteran's adjusted DP arrears, and not from any DFISA arrears payable to the partner.
