    I need clarification on whether entitlement to HB/CTB must be continual in the 12 month take-on for pensioners up to the date of claim or do i need a new form if there are periods of nil entitlement within this period preceding the date of claim? my initial response was i need a new form as there is a break in entitlement but an HBInfo response back in may 04 (stalabansbenefits) suggests different – see below:

    ‘the requirement that the claimant be entitled to HB/CTB continuously throughout the backdate period no longer applies’

    If this is true, can somebody advise me where this is in the regs and add a bit of logic to the argument please.

    I have received a response from the DWP re my query, for future reference the guidance is as follows:

    You need a new claim form if there are periods of nil entitlement however, this claim form can be in a simple format, for example it could be written statement.
