Compensation Recovery Unit
The Compensation Recovery Unit (CRU) works with insurance companies, solicitors and DWP customers, to recover:
- amounts of social security benefits paid as a result of an accident, injury or disease, where a compensation payment has been made. This is known as the Compensation Recovery Scheme.
- costs incurred by NHS hospitals and Ambulance Trusts for treatment from injuries from road traffic accidents and personal injury claims. This is known as Recovery of NHS Charges.
