I thought they became a MAC when the claimant turned SPC age in October 22 (their joint ESA claim ended at that point) (the partner is still working age now)- are you saying that you don’t believe their HB should have ended in October 22 even if they were not living in Specified Accommodation? Why not if so?
The working age AA has been used I think just because someone has added the ‘MAC’ status to the partner within Academy from October 22 (they are entitled to full/max HB at the exempt accommodation and I haven’t made a decision for the new address yet, so fortunately there hasn’t been an underpayment of HB, yet).
Thank you so much for your help.
