The Social Security (Fines) (Deductions from Benefits) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2021 - screening

Date published: 10 March 2022

This Statutory Rule will provide for deductions to be made from UC where a fine or compensation order has been imposed upon a person (the offender) by a court to meet the sums due in respect of such fines and compensation orders. Where this Department receives an application from a court or a collections officer, as the case may be, in respect of an offender who is entitled to UC, this Statutory Rule provides that the Department may deduct a sum from that benefit which is equal to 5% of the standard allowance or £5.00, whichever is the greater amount.
