Reply To: DPTC and Disability premium


Tax Credit award notices make no mention of any elements at all. Presumably this will change when the IR get their act together. After all – how exactly does someone know whether to appeal if they can’t tell how their award has been calculated? However – we have seen some awards where a disability element is included. You can tell this because on page 3 of the award notice (where it says “[name] works **hrs per week”) it also says “is disabled”. This tells you that a disability element is included in the WTC award and that therefore the disability premium should apply in HB/CTB.
