We had a similar case where a pensioner failed to supply evidence in September and we terminated the claim. They have now come back re-claimed and we are having to treat the new claim as being made on 6th October because of the transitional provisions in reg 29 of the HB/CTB Pension Credit Regs.
I think you are in the same position and I think the transitional provisions overrule the normal rules on effective date of claim. It looks to me that pensioners have a years carte blanche to claim, re-claim or whatever and have the date of claim go back to 6/10/03.
