8.7.5 Recovery of a partner's overpayment

8.7.5.1The legislative requirement to recover the partner's social security income support overpayment from the veteran's adjusted DP arrears, even where the partner has DFISA arrears, is contained in section 27A VEA. The partner's overpayment must firstly be recovered from the veteran's DP arrears. If the veteran's DP arrears are insufficient to cover both the veteran's and the partner's overpayments then an overpayment recovery action is raised and the overpayment can be recovered from the DFISA arrears.
