Insertion of regulation 4A into the Transitional Regulations

2.  After regulation 4 of the Transitional Regulations (deeming of claims for income support) there shall be inserted the following regulation —

Payments on account of income support

4A.(1) Where, by virtue of regulation 4 (deeming of claims by former beneficiaries), a person’s entitlement to income support, for a period commencing in the week beginning 11th April 1988, falls to be determined as if a claim for it had been duly made and no determination has been made by that date, the Secretary of State may make a payment on account of income support and the amount of such payment shall be offset by the adjudicating authority in reduction of any income support, any transitional payment of income support under regulation 7 (transitional payments for former beneficiaries) and any addition under Part II, subsequently awarded.

(2) Where a payment on account has been made under paragraph (1) and the adjudicating authority determines that there is no entitlement to income support, or that the entitlement is less than the amount of the payment on account, that authority shall determine the amount of the overpayment.

(3) The amount of any overpayment determined under paragraph (2) shall be recoverable by the Secretary of State by the same procedures and subject to the same conditions as if it were recoverable under section 53(1) of the Act (overpayments).

(4) A payment on account under this regulation may be made by means of an instrument of payment or such other means as appears to the Secretary of State to be appropriate in the circumstances of any particular case and, notwithstanding the repeal of any enactment, may be made by an instrument of payment or book of serial orders issued for the purpose of paying supplementary benefit..
