Got yet another mixed age couple scenario. Couple were getting ir-ESA plus occ pen and state pension and c-ESA. Older member of the couple is 69 and therefore have not aged into scenario. ESA ended due to Industrial Injuries being paid to them.
This now means they get Pensioner HB. I haven’t crunched the numbers but might this mean they could claim PC? Or not because the HB change didn’t apply until after APril 19.
Edit – HB has not ended which I believe is correct as it’s a simple change in income
