    I have established that there should be a £15 disregard from Widowed Parent’s allowance under HB Schedule 5 paragraph 16.

    Under HB Schedule 5 paragraph 34, the maxium disregard for certain types of unearned income including Widowed Parents allowance is £20.00.

    However if they are working, do they still receive the earnings disregard?

    I think they should receive both disregards as one is an unearned income and one is earnings.

    Thank you

    The earnings disregards are quite separate and the claimant is entitled to both. The maximum £20 rule only applies to the unearned income types mentioned in the regs (student grant loans/war disablement and war widows pensions/widowed mothers and parents allowance)
