Reply To: HB start date


id its the pensioner that is the surviving partner, then the usual rules apply – they get 3 months automatic backdating to either
the date of their significant birthday
the date they moved in /date they became liaible
3 months before claim was received

You know no claim could be accepted before 2 April (because of the MAC rules) so the claim date is backdated a max of 3 months to 2 April, with start date being Monday after, 3rd April
