    We had a RA claim where the claimant had been granted indefinite leave to remain and the partner was a person who had temporary admission but was liable to be detained.

    The partner had no NINO so we sent a DCI1LA. This got returned as the ‘customer failed to reply to enquiries’. The claim got refused. They have now been given a Council property (dont ask!) and again applied for HB and CTB.

    Do we now send another DCI1LA or have they had their chance of assistance from us and we refuse the claim at this stage and invite an application when the partner has a NINO (if ever).

    [quote:8666a76c0a]Section 19 of the Social Security Administration (Fraud) Act introduced a requirement on claimants to provide a National Insurance number (NINO) for themselves and their partner (if they have one). If the claimant gives you their NINO, but can provide no evidence that links them to it, a form (DCI1LA) should be sent to the Jobcentre Plus who will search their records and provide confirmation that it belongs to the claimant/partner. Similarly, if the claimant states that they do not have a NINO, the DCI1LA is sent to the Jobcentre Plus to confirm this and the Jobcentre Plus will start the process to issue a NINO.[/quote:8666a76c0a]

    The above quote from the DWP

    I’d say that you have to send another DCI1LA… 😯

    We have already done this for the previous application and they did not reply to the DWP’s correspondance / request for an interview so the claim got refused.

    Would you suggest we go through this process again?

    Steve, I would say that you should. In essence you are part of an administrative process (1. They have asked for HB / CTB. 2. You respond by asking them for supporting evidence 3. They cannot supply it 4. You offer to complete and send a DCI 1LA.)
    After that sequence it is up to them.
    I feel you may be on dodgy ground if you do not treat the claim as “new” in all respects. 8)
