    I’ve been asked to post this question.

    We have a customer who gets 2AR by better buy. She would get around £3 per week on main scheme but gets £4 on 2AR.

    We’d like to give her a DHP but obviously can only do so if she qualifies for CTB. Hence the question “is 2AR CTB”?

    Is it not “Alternative Main CTB”? However how could a DHP be awarded as your client is either entitled to 25/15 or 7.5% dependant on Non Dep’s circs? I don’t see how a DHP could be payable on a 2AR claim.

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

    2AR is CTB, but a DHP cannot be awarded to a person who is only entitled to 2AR.

    I think a DHP is payable here !

    DHP is only excluded by virtue of reg 3(e) of the DFA Regs where the conditions for entitlement to main CTB are not met. They are met here but s131(6) of the SSCBA 1992 means that 2AR is awarded instead.

    In summary:

    CTB = Possible DHP

    CTB + 2AR (better buy) = Possible DHP

    2AR only (no better buy) = No DHP
