This section has no associated Explanatory Memorandum

9.—(1) Subject to paragraph (2) a person may opt to end an award of rate relief at any time by notice in writing received by electronic communication, by telephone call to a telephone number specified by the relevant authority or in such other manner as the relevant authority may decide or accept.

(2) Any notice of opting to end an award given in accordance with paragraph (1) has effect from the date specified by the claimant or where no date is specified, from the day the notice is received.

(3) Where a claimant gives notice of ending an award before a decision has been given on the claim, which is not a withdrawal in accordance with regulation 8, and an award is later made the notice shall be accepted and treated as if an award had been made at the time the notice was received.

(4) Once an award has ended in accordance with this regulation it cannot be reinstated.

(5) Subject to paragraph (7) where a claimant opts to end an award of rate relief in accordance with paragraph (1) any new claim which has a date of claim before the date that the next relevant date would have been due on the award had it not so ended, will have entitlement calculated using the universal credit information that would have applied had the award not so ended.

(6) Where a new claim is received in accordance with paragraph (5) the next relevant date shall be the date that would have been the next relevant date had the previous award not ended in accordance with this regulation.

(7) Paragraphs (5) and (6) shall cease to apply where entitlement to universal credit ceases at any time after the claimant opts to end an award.
