    Should really know the answer to this but….

    We have a claim for a customer who is over £100 below his applicable amount for HB. His Pension Credit (GC) claim ended due to excess income.

    Is it that the appropriate amount (?) for Pension Credit doesn’t take into account dependents?

    ❓ ❓ ❓

    Yes – there no allowances for deps in the PC AMG – PC claimants with dep children/YPs should claim CTC.

    Particularly if there are two or more children, you could easily have the situation you describe.

    Lovely, thanks.

    Had a vague, dim and distant memory but wasn’t sure if I was making it up!
