I agree with Jon & Mark.

If the clmt meets the criteria for Extended Payment, s/he will have met the criteria within [b:819277ce97]HBR 77[/b:819277ce97] (or HBR 78 ) which requires that, in such circumstances, HB [u:819277ce97]must[/u:819277ce97] end. There is no discretion.

As already stated, once a claim has ended, no further benefit can (lawfully) be awarded without a new claim.
