Backdating claim

Rated 3.81/5 based on 797 customer reviews

Your benefit will usually start the Monday after we receive your application.In some circumstances, we may be able to pay Housing Benefit for an earlier date than the date of your claim form. Backdating is sometimes possible, but there are only limited circumstances, so it is best to make your claim for housing benefit as soon as possible.Your claim can only be backdated for a maximum of one month.

I wondered because of the wording of regulations ( 26(1) of UC 2013) regarding backdating am I flogging a dead horse or shall I plough on see what a tribunal says?A claim for housing benefit for a claimant who has attained the age to qualify for pension credit can be backdated for a maximum of three months.[2]The state pension calculator can be used to calculate when a claimant will qualify for pension credit.A pension age claimant does not have to ask for the claim to backdated or to demonstrate a 'good cause' for a late claim.This only applies if you (or your partner) are not in receipt of Jobseekers Allowance, Income Support, or Employment and Support Allowance.If we can backdate your claim, the most we can go back is 3 months before you made your claim.
