    Help, help, help

    Does anyone have an answer on the following, as I am really struggling. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    We have a dutch lady who has been in receipt of HB for quite some time. We were originally satisfied that she had passed the HRT test and we granted HB.

    Her partner then came to live with her in June 2010. He is a nigerian gentleman who has been given a NINO but has no recourse to public funds.

    We re-assessed the benefit claim in June 2010 and included the partner onto the claim. The HB was then worked out using the claimants earnings and tax credits.

    However, it has now come to light that our claimant actually became a full time student receiving a student loan from September 2010 and she is pregnant and ceased working from January 2011.

    Therefore, the family are now living on just a student loan, CTC and child benefit since January 2011.

    I believe that we now need to cancel the HB from the date she became a student because she would not be eligible and the partner would need to make a claim for the couple. However, can he do this because he has no recourse to public funds? Would that then lead us to question whether or not the family have the right to benefit as can we argue that they would now be a burden on the state?

    Any help please.

    Many Thanks
