    There have been recent threads about the effective date of a qualifying benefit.
    Supposing an award of SSP or Incap Ben is made from 1 Feb; this would be effective fom that date (DM&R 7(2)(i) and 8(14). (Assume we are not told at that time)
    However, if the claimant does not notify us of the reduction in earnings (or no earnings) until 1 April, it would appear that these would only be changed/removed from 03 April (regs 7(2a) and 8(3).

    Is this correct? (I can’t believe it can be as clmt would be penalised by qualifying benefit rule which is surely not the intention.)

    Can anyone help please?
