Reply To: Amendment 9 – Oh what fun!


Well Peter, I reckon you can now just choose which section of the manual you prefer when it comes to:

Overpayment classification;
Relevant dates of change in HB/CTB;
Whether frequency of payments matter;
Just about everything else too.

My understanding about payment cycles was that at the start of the year they could only be relevant to the predicative change cases – but this is because the changes are in the middle of the year! Therefore, if the awards are made (or start in) the middle of the year I had assumed this would be treated in the same way. As far as I’m concerned the manual now wants it both ways. The relevance (or not?) of the “Saturday to Sunday” week is a case in point.
