Reply To: Pensioner claim or working age claim


I have queried this with DWP and they have confirmed the following:

If the claimant is under 60 and the partner is over 60 and neither are in receipt of IS or JSA(IB) the claim will be assessed under the HB/CTB(SPC) Regs.

Christine also confirmed that she would be amending the answers to questions 94 and 136 on the external log to reflect this.
