Pension Credit – AIPs and recalculation of entitlement

Claimant received State Pension, occupational pension and small amount of Savings Pension Credit.

Benefits calculator indicates no PC entitlement unless occupational pension is ignored. Given age of claimant they may have an indefinite AIP so the award may be correct.

My question is about what happens if they do have an AIP and they become eligible to have Severe Disability Addition included in calculation of PC entitlement.

It doesn’t look as if this is a change that would end the AIP so I infer AIP would continue and pension will still be ignored but I have no previous experience of this. Is this correct?
