    Somewhere I have seen that if IS (or any other ‘relevant benefit’) starts on any particular day, we can amend HB/CTB from that actual day (rather than Monday after). Does anyone know where I can find this circular, reg etc – if it is the case of course…

    Thanks

    It is the case. The rule applies when someone who is already getting less HB/CTB starts receiving a state benefit: there is a superseding decision under D&A Reg 7(2)(i), and it takes effect in accordance with Reg 8(14) from the exact day on which entitlement to the “relevant benefit” commences.

    I am not sure whether this particular point has been the subject of a circular and the Guidance Manual looks out of date (para C10.620 et seq).

    But the Reg says what it says.
