DWP customers in receipt of certain benefits or credits may have deductions taken from their benefit and paid to a creditor under what is known as the Third Party Deduction (TPD) Scheme. Third Party Deductions will only be made when it is considered (and agreed) to be in the interest of the customer or the customer’s family. The actual payment of monies owed to the Creditor and paid on behalf of the DWP customer is known as a Third Party Payment (TPP). The aim of this handbook is to provide an overview of how the TPD scheme works to organisations (referred to as Creditors) who receive Third Party Payments.
