    I would appreciate any advice on qualifying benefits for Extended Payments – if someone had received Widowed Parents Allowance with an underlying entitlement to Incapacity Benefit, then I believe that there is no qualifying benefit for Extended Payments as Incapacity benefit was not actually received.

    Thanks for any help.


    Reg 78 (1) (a) states “entitled to and in receipt of SDA or IB”

    I don’t think therefore that an underlying entitlement to IB is sufficient to award an EP.

    However was the WPA topped up with any amount of IB (however small)? If so then you may be able to pay.

    Do I know what I'm doing? The jury's out on that........................
