Memo to LCA on Centrelink Automated Debt Recovery (Robo-debt)

The Law Institute of Victoria (LIV) has submitted a memo to the Law Council of Australia (LCA) informing their advocacy on the Online Compliance Intervention (OCI) automated debt rocovery system operated by Centrelink.

Automated debt notices (referred to as a 'robo-debt') have been widely sent out since the OCI system was implemented in 2016 to enable Centrelink to recover purported overpayments made to recipients of Centrelink benefits.

The LIV's submission addresses the issues of legality and the implementation of the OCI system, as well as the impact this initiative has had on welfare recipients and organisations who have been inundated with requests to support individuals affected by the system.
