HIi everyone, just a quickie;

If someone gets backdated PIP pay and it means that they go over the allowable capital amount what happens?  Is there a rule where it is discounted for a certain amount of time, say 12 months, and then it is taken into account again no matter what?  I have a copy of the big CPAG handbook but I can’t seem to find it (although to be honest I’m quite bad at finding info in there!)

Thank you in advance

Disregarded for 52 weeks (longer in cases of official error or an error of law) from when you receive them. Bottom of page 498 in the 20/21 CPAG refers.

Ahh thanks so much, I was so close, doh!  Though having a 2 year old hanging off me every 3 minutes is not helping!
