    Can anyone advise how we should treat arrears of HB that have arisen following a PC application back to Oct 03 – Is it capital, income or disregarded?

    thanks.

    Arrears of HB paid to pensioners are disregarded as capital for 1 year from the date of receipt. See HB Regs Sch 5ZA paras 18 and 21.

    But of course, in your case, that only matters if the PC award has already ended! Because if it hasn’t your award is either maximum HB (because they get Guarantee Credit) or based on the AIF + Savings Credit if it’s savings credit only. You shouldn’t add any capital or income back on unless the rules about modification apply.
