    Come to that what does anything mean?

    Anyway – just to narrow it down a bit, I’m referring to Tax Credit awards where it says

    “You will be paid £25.00 per week
    UNTIL 07/06/2005
    Your payment will then change to £16.00 per week”

    So is 07/06/2005 the date when £25.00 is paid for the last time…
    …. or is it the date that £16.00 is paid for the first time?

    Up to now I have been interpreting it as the second option.
    Now I’m not so sure and have asked DWP Adelphi for clarification.

    Just curious about how other people interpret the dates when its paid “until”.

    we contacted the tax credit helpline on a particular case and was advised that UNTIL is the last date they receive the payment at the unrevised amount .Therefore in your example 07/06/2005 claimant will receive £25.00 for the last time and on 14/06/2005 is the first date the £16.00 will be paid.

    Update:

    Adelphi are going to seek clarification from InRev on an example award.
    Their advice in the meantime is that the “until” date is the last payment at the old rate.

    I have received conflicting advice on this particular award. I am still in two minds but will follow the latest advice from DWP until clarification received.

    Final update:

    This from the Inland Revenue via The Adelphi:

    [color=darkred:b25d71d3b1]”I have checked with our Award notice analysts who confirm that the ‘until’ date refers to the amount shown on the line above and is paid inclusive of the date following “until”. “[/color:b25d71d3b1]

    So in the example given at the top of this thread…..

    “You will be paid £25.00 per week
    UNTIL 07/06/2005
    Your payment will then change to £16.00 per week”

    ….the [b:b25d71d3b1]first [/b:b25d71d3b1]payment at the [b:b25d71d3b1]lower [/b:b25d71d3b1]rate occurs on the [b:b25d71d3b1]14/06/2005[/b:b25d71d3b1]

    So despite being a bit unclear grammatically, that’s the advice – and that “in real life” is when the money drops for the claimant.
