    I have a strange situation here and would appreciate any advice.

    An ETD notice has been received awarding Savings Credit to a claimant who is only 64 years old. We have contacted our local PS who confirm that yes SC can be awarded to anyone over 60.

    1. When did this rule change?
    2. Assuming that this is a mistake (surely not) are we still required to assess our claim using the AIF and SC figures provided?

    The only way this could happen is if your claimant is a member of a couple and the partner is 65. s3 of the State Pension Credit Act is not fussy about which one claims as long as there is a 65 year old in there somewhere.

    Unless s3 has been amended, but I don’t think it has.

    I’ve not heard of any changes, is there an “invisible” partner? not showing on etd but in existence somewhere? Is this a projected award from 65th birthday? interesting….

    Unfortunatetly, nothing as simple as that. The partner is under 65 as well.
