Payments from us
We may pay income support to the assuree during the assurance of support period if you can't support them, or they can't accept support from you.
We normally speak to both of you before we do this.
What you need to repay

- Newstart Allowance
- Parenting Payment
- Sickness Allowance
- Special Benefit
- Widow Allowance
- Youth Allowance

How we get the money back
We get the money back from you:
- through a debt notice that you have to pay
- from your bank guarantee if you have one, or
- from your bank guarantee plus a debt notice, if the amount to repay is more than the bank guarantee
