Time limit on the army claiming back overpay

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. is there one?
    just got wacked for £850 that was (apparently) overpaid last nov/dec.
    Going through appeals at the moment.
  2. i think its something daft like one weeks pay in any given month if it's their error or something like that.

    all they'll say is you got over paid it so why did you spend it??
  3. didn't think it was overpay. thought it was iraq allowances
  4. JPA/C has just carried out an audit which has resulted in some people being hit with a debit this month. We have a couple of cases at our unit.

    Speak to your HR Admin and JPAC to find out what it was for.
    AFAIK there isn't a limit to how long they can leave it before they reclaim the overpayment.
  5. found out this month I owe nearly £800 from 12 months ago, only problem is that i had already paid it all back. My admin staff are trying to sort it out. Currently putting money aside because i dont believe it will be sorted out in time to stop them starting to recover what isn't owed.
