Reply To: Pensioner claim or working age claim


Linking into Simon’s question – can I just clarify the relationship between the AIP and the AIF?
Our bible the Pension Credit Handbook suggests that the AIP cannot be set where one of the couple is under 60 (SEE part 110, 111). How does this square itself with the AIF which is surely linked to the AIP? Or are the existance of the two not necessarily linked? Questions eh?
Apologies to temporarily hijack this trail – pleae feel free to comment on this briefly before moving onto 8) Simon’s questions.
