Reply To: over 65’s non-deps


I have now received a new Dear Benefits Manager letter.

The idea of ‘aniversary dates’ for taking non dep deductions into account have been scrapped.

New legislation will be introduced shortly which will mean that:

A non dep deduction will not be taking into account for a period of 26 weeks where the claimant is over 65 and the change occurs after 6th October 2003 and the change would mean the claimant receives less benefit.

If the claimant would get more benefit then the change occurs immediately.

If you would like a copy of the letter please email me 😯
