Reply To: A13/06 Underlying entitlement


[quote:15eb5a9b2f]However, the claimant may ask for a backdated decision to be made, which should be considered, following the normal backdating rules. You do not need to recalculate underlying entitlement every time fresh details come to light which could affect the overpayment period’.[/quote:15eb5a9b2f]

I would disagree as any fresh evidence (especially if it increased the overpayment) would highlight that the original calculation was incorrect as UE is part of the calculation of the overpayment. What grounds are there for not considering evidence relevant to the calculation of correct benefit entitlement?
