Reply To: Modification of the AIF


I queried the same question with the DWP and they sent me the following response:

“You are correct it is not the intention that LAs will modify all the AIFs and consequently deal with all the appeals. The correct policy is set out in the HB/CTB Pension Credit handbook at section 10 and in Appendix C. If you do not have a hard copy, it is on the DWP website in the HB section.

In the meantime we will consider whether a further circular to clarify A/23 will be issued”
