In your example the AIf and savings credit amount should be included from the date you are notified from the Pension Service the 17/11/03. Any delay in actioning the change is LA error, from 17/11/03 to 15/12/03. You would then have to decide whether it is reasonable to expect the claimant to have been aware that they were being overpaid benefit. I would look at each individual case and it would depend on the claimants age, health, any othe known circs and whether the AIF was lower or higher than the income previously used in the calculation. The regs are 68B and I would presume the award results in less Hb, because of the o/p and suggest you look at 68B(5)(i)
