Reply To: HB/CTB start date for pensioners


The september version of the pension credits handbook, states ‘ there will be the power to backdate awards of pension credit made between 06.10.03and 05.10.04 to week commencing 06.10.03,or if the claimant would not have been entitled from 06.10.03, to whichever date during that period that entitlement would have begun.’

We have interpreted this as 06.10.03.
