Reply To: Mixed Age Couple – does HB end?

Peter Barker

If there is entitlement to ESA(ir), HB continues because Article 6(2)(a) says HB terminates if the claimant becomes a member of a mixed age couple AND the HB award would have been under the HB(SPC) Regs. This HB award will be under the working age HB Regs so it doesn’t terminate.
