Reply To: Start date of HB Pensioner claims


Yes, reg 29, the transitional provision of the HB/CTB PC regs state that any claim for HB or CTB made after 061003, but before 061004 by a claimant or partner who has attained the ‘qualifying age’, shall be treated as made either on 061003, or the date they reached the qualifying age, if later. This is if the La is satisfied that the conditons for entitlement were fufilled on that day.
It is our intention to confirm that no changes in circs have occurred during the period concerned.
