(a)the applicant is entitled to a reduction under this scheme;

(b)sub-paragraph (2) is satisfied; and

(c)either—

(ii)the applicant’s partner has actually claimed state pension credit.

(2) This sub-paragraph is only satisfied if the Secretary of State has certified to the authority that the applicant’s partner has actually claimed state pension credit or that—

(a)the applicant’s award of—

(i)income support has terminated because the applicant has attained the qualifying age for state pension credit; or

(ii)income-based jobseeker’s allowance or income-related employment and support allowance has terminated because the applicant has attained the qualifying age for state pension credit or the age of 65; and

(b)the applicant has claimed or is treated as having claimed or is required to make a claim for state pension credit.

(3) Subject to sub-paragraph (4), in a case to which this paragraph applies, a person continues to be entitled to a reduction under this scheme for the period of 4 weeks beginning on the day following the day the applicant’s entitlement to income support or, as the case may be, income-based jobseeker’s allowance, income-related employment and support allowance, ceased, if and for so long as the applicant otherwise satisfies the conditions for entitlement to a reduction under this scheme.

(4) Where a reduction under this scheme is awarded for the period of 4 weeks in accordance with sub-paragraph (3) above, and the last day of that period falls on a day other than the last day of a reduction week, then a reduction under this scheme is to continue to be awarded until the end of the reduction week in which the last day of that period falls.

(5) Throughout the period of 4 weeks specified in sub-paragraph (3) and any further period specified in sub-paragraph (4)—

(a)the whole of the income and capital of the applicant is to be disregarded;

(b)the applicant’s maximum council tax reduction is to be that which was applicable in the applicant’s case immediately before that period commenced.

(a)the applicant’s council tax liability has increased; or

(b)a change in the deduction under paragraph 28 (non-dependant deductions) falls to be made.
