The default scheme has not been amended since it was set up in 2013 because the DCLG expect you to make your own rules for most working age customers. They amended the prescribed scheme to mirror the 4 week absence from GB rules but this part of the prescribed scheme applies to CTR pensioners only. Many councils copy the CTR pensioner changes into their working age schemes too but it is up to you to decide if you want to do that.
