    We have a claimant for whom TPS provided a decision showing a nil award for savings credit. An AIF has been provided along with their assessed capital level in excess of £16,000. The claimant has appealed against the HB/CTB decision stating capital is much less. My enquiries to TPS suggest that the claimant wrote to them but was told he was still over the limit. As he failed to qualify for PC do we make our own decisions or continue to use TPS info. I would appreciate your comments.

    I would suggest that because the customer has not got an ‘award’ of Pension Credit, then you are not bound by the PS determination of income or capital, and are free to make your own determinations.
