Reply To: Benefit Take-up . . . as if there isn’t enough to do already


If we want to look on the bright side then we can can console ourselves with the transitional arrangements during the take-up period, viz, where a claim for HB is received from a pensioner (except JSA / IS) between 6 October 03 and 5 October 03, the claim is treated as being made on 6 October 03. (Broadly speaking)

I guess this might be useful and removes the urgency in getting pensioners to claim now. 😆
