Reply To: Amendment 9 – Oh what fun!

Sorry – I didn’t mean to imply everything was sorted out now, just that the examples highlighted by Peter made sense with the revised dates/figures.

I agree, that in reality the way Amendment 9 says we should be assessing the awards throws up anomalies. For example, we have recieved a NTC award letter where the rate of payment changes “in-year” – INcreasing the amount of NTC being paid to the customer. However, when assessing the 2 periods of NTC rates for HB/CTB purposes – (i.e. deducting the arrears from the first period and working out the number of days from the date of the award letter etc) – the amount of NTC rate actually DEcreases for our purposes.

I agree – further clarification is still required.
