Reply To: Mixed Age Couple – working partner has pre-settled status


I dont think the exemption applies anymore because the exemption which alowed them to claim HB was thatshe didnt have recourse to public funds. Now she does.
hey no longer meet the exemption criteria to claim HB so i think HB ends once she has recourse to public funds.
I don’t think the fact she/they doesnt qualify for UC is relevant.( she wouldn’t qualify if they had excess income either)
