The partner IS (should be!) included on the CTR claim
They are a couple for benefit purposes and as hes a pensioner, based onthe CTAX Ben regs.
So you need partners NINO and she is included.

Customer needs to be advised that this could potentially jeopardise her immigration status as he is receiving mor CTR because she is n the claim ( because no SPD on ctax account) and this MAY be viewed as her making use of public funds – – if he decides he want to claim once he is aware of this, then the claim is assessed with both members of the couple on it. If he doesnt want to risk it, then no CTR claim is paid.
