    Wondering if anyone can give me any guidance or point me in the right direction?

    We received a claim form on 12/10/10 in respect of a Mr S who died on 10/9/10 – it has been submitted by his daughter NOT from the other side ❗ Anyway, the story is as follows: claim for CTB was live early this year when we were notified by DWP that PC(G) had ceased 7/2/10 as Mrs S had died 1/2/10. Claim was suspended on 24/2/10, letter and short bereavement form (2 sides of an A4 sheet) was sent to Mr S the claimant. No contact so assessor referred it for a home visit. Letter was sent to claimant on 23/4/10 offering a visit. Again no response from claimant. Assessor cancelled claim as insufficient information held regarding income/savings save CIS info showing State Pension and AA BUT no PC(G) or PC(S). Form was again sent out with letter advising claimant to complete form and provide income/savings proof if he wished to claim.

    No further contact until daughter sends in original bereavement form issued 24/2/10 and claim form issued 8/3/10, both signed but not dated by claimant, with proof of State RP and AA and death cert but no income declared on the form or proof of any income/savings.

    Can we pay CTB for any period at all or does R(IS) 3/04 from a previous thread – claim following death- apply?

    Any help would be very gratefully received 😯


    Erm, the short answer is no. There are various threads on this issue.
