Reply To: temporary absence


[quote:25f155a1a1=”bradlesl”]Help please, we have a difference of opinion re this case

Claimant moved into property on 230106 and put in claim for HB on 090206 requesting a backdate.

He was then taken into custody on 030306 and therefore did not supply info for his original claim which was subsequently deemed defective.

He has now asked for the period of temp absence to be paid while he was on remand.

Can we pay even though he was not in receipt of HB at the time he was taken into custody?

Any one got any ideas[/quote:25f155a1a1]

From that explanation you can tell that there was a good reason for not providing info!
