    We have an A8 couple. They were both working until recently and did not need to claim benefit. Before they had completed a year the husband found out that he had terminal cancer so had to stop work. The partner had to give up work to look after him.

    The husband has been awarded Incapacity Benefit but they were turned down for Income Support. At the time they gave up work they had not been working a year.

    My understanding is that becuse they are not in receipt of Income Support they cannot claim HB / CTB. Can someone please confirm that this is the case or point me in the direction of the Circular / Regulations that will allow us to pay.

    Thanks
