Reply To: Benefit prior to occupation


There could be several reasons operating, all of which may have contributed to the delay, including disablement adaptations.

Regulation 7 includes a member of the claimants family in that provison, and also allows payment of HB ” for any period not exeeding 4 weeks prior to the date he moved….”

Note the word “any”. This means that the delay can be longer than 4 weeks, it also means that the period is determined from the date the claimant moves in, not the date the disabled family member moves in
