    If we have a claim made in March, they are disallowed the claim as they haven’t provided all the information in time. The decision is then superseded to be paid from April.

    Do we use the March or April LHA Rate?




    Superseded non-entitlement? Don’t think that can be done???

    If there was a defect that was ‘remedied’ the award should be based on the claim made in March otherwise they need to make a new claim.

    If they made an advance claim it will depend on when the claim is ‘treated as made’.

    I’ve probably misunderstood your post…???


    Andreas – clear to me I am afraid. It sounds rather typical of the confused decision-making and criss-crossing of various HB regs in some places (I have just seen it in another LA). As you say, the LA should either extend the timescales to provide the info needed or a reasonable adverse inference made etc. Either way, the claim as made should start from March or not at all.
