Extra information - miscellaneous information: Applicant Failed Payment examples

Example 1

Claim 1 is made for a joint household that is awarded from 09/05/04 until the household ends on 05/10/04.

Claim 2 is made for a single household and the effective date of claim is set as 06/10/04 (the day after the previous household ended).

A change of circumstances is applied to Claim 2 and History details for an entitlement element are entered with a start date of 30/09/04, which is prior to 06/10/04.

When the claim is recalculated, a new claim effective date is applied of 30/09/04, which causes Claim 1 and Claim 2 to overlap.

Example 2

Claim 1 is made for a joint household that is awarded from 09/05/04 until the household ends on 05/10/04.

Claim 2 is made for a single household and the effective date of claim is set as 06/10/04 (the day after the previous household ended).

The household end date for Claim 1 is removed either by an operator or due to a system problem.

Claim 1 is recalculated and payments are generated for the period from 09/05/04 to 05/04/05, creating an overlapping award with Claim 2.
