Credits only claim and fit notes
Client applied for CBESA to get NI credits (does not meet contribution conditions and husband works over 24 hours). Her fit note has gone missing so I emailed it to the relevant benefit centre asking them to log it.
Their reply to my request that they log the fit note
‘Customer does not satisfy 2nd NI contributions condition for ESA©.
Claim currently credits only.’
Which I was fully aware of but are they suggesting that there’s no need to log the fit note as it’s a credits-only claim?
