Non dependent deduction for housing benefit – pension credit claimant and her son

I have a client who receives PC and her son has been disregarded for a NDD since July 2020, expiring in Jan 2021.  The council have applied this stating that her son has moved in with her.  He has always lived with her!  He’s 26 and was a full time student but has been doing a 2-year apprenticeship that ends in December 2020.  The client hasn’t told HB that her son has had a wage.  I am obviously concerned that there might be an overpayment if I contact HB on her behalf although you could argue that this is official error…

Am I missing something for PC HB claimants?
