In certain cases you may have to repay any assistance you have received under the Supplementary Welfare Allowance Scheme.
- if Supplementary Welfare Allowance is paid while you are waiting for a Social Welfare payment, the amount paid will be deducted from the arrears of your Social Welfare payment
- if you are paid an Urgent Needs Payment, you may have to pay back all or part of what you have been paid if you are working or once an insurance claim has been settled.
