This is for historical reference only. legislative requirement to recover the partner's social security income support overpayment from the veteran's adjusted DP arrears, even where the partner had 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 were insufficient to cover both the veteran's and the partner's overpayments then an overpayment recovery action was raised and the overpayment could be recovered from the DFISA arrears.
