    Customer has submitted new claim, we have assessed this and she only qualifies for 4 weeks until income increases then is Nil Qualifier.
    Claimant meets criteria for 13 weeks rule. Can we award 13 week rule in this claim as if we do the claimant qualifies for some HB for 13 weeks instead of 4?

    Thanks

    Presumably she becomes nil qualifier after 4 weeks by virtue of the increased income set against the restricted rent?

    If she qualifies for the thirteen week rule then her increased income set againt the full rent charge may result in her being entitled for the full 13 weeks but that is as it should isn’t it – unless I have misunderstood something

    In short if she qualifies for the thirteen week rule then this should be applied to her assessment for the full thirteen weeks – and then the rent adjusted to the restricted amount.

    Yep – the 13 week rule does not require that the claimant remains entitled to HB for the full 13 weeks. What if they moved out in week 12? 8)
