Reply To: TA Daily Start Date/ Backdating

I think your problem here is Reg 76(3)(c) “becomes liable in that benefit week”. That seems to me to limit the scope of the no-strings backdate to a case where the claim is being made for an award to start from the beginning of the claimant’s liability, and it doesn’t help where the claimant was already liable as a self-funder before the week from which they want their HB to start.
