    If a claim for CTB /HB is in payment but partner submits a new claim, which shows that our claimant is still in the household, they are still a couple. what action would you take ?
    often this happens when we have a standard claim then a claim for a passporting benefit is made with the partner as the claimant and a LAID is completed

    would you allow the existing claim to continue and deal with the change in income ? if so do we have a legal duty to notify the partner that her claim is not required?
    would you terminate the existing claim and deal with the new claim made by the partner (with the existing claimant as the partner )

    from a practical view, it would be easier to leave the existing claim and deal with the change in income.
