UC (TP) Regs, Reg 8A(a)

I’m confused by the wording used in this reg: “even if no decision has been made…”.

What happens if a decision is eventually made that the claimant is not entitled to UC, does it mean they will still be treated as entitled to UC for the two week run-on period?

Basically, I’m wondering if a claimant about to start a new job can make a claim for UC just before starting the job (with the knowledge that that the claim will be refused due to income), and “lock in” HB entitlement for 2 weeks relying on this provision.
