Reply To: HRT – reconsidering retrospectively


Well as far as I can see she’s only a worker from March, and has only recently received worker status docs from the Home Office, so the HRT will only apply from June 05 to March 06.

I’m suspecting from her letter that the husband doesn’t have a NINO, so if that’s the case, once I establish the date he returned she’ll not be eligible until he gets one, but there is the period in between to consider. Points noted re the working decision, though again I’m waiting for more info re that. From what I can gather she’s employed by a friend to help clean some premises, though there is a caretaker who also looks after the place. I think the assesser believed the employment to be not geniuine, but a situation created to enable the claimant to portray herself as a worker to enable her to get benefit.
