My understanding was that you treat the claim as being received on the 06/10/03, but that obviously means the claim starts on the following Monday – the 13/10/03 (unless they also moved in the property on the 06/10/03!).

I seem to recall the FAQ section on the DWP website confirmed benefit should commence on the 13/10/03…

…just checked. It is the very last question answered in log number two under the section ‘take up’.
