My Department may transfer monies owing and accruing to a participant in a scheme administered by this Department to a judgment creditor of that person where there is a  court order or other legal basis providing for such transfer.

My Department has examined its records in this matter and have confirmed that, while a court order was obtained, no payments falling within the terms of that order have become owing and accruing from the Department to the relevant judgment debtor.

My Department will write separately to the person named in this matter.
