Social security - Income support - Entitlement - Claimant claiming income support for interest on loans secured against her home - Commissioner finding claimant not eligible for income support - Whether commissioner in error - Income Support (General) Regulations 1987, Sch 3, para 7(7).
A claim for income support would be justified by responsibility for the relevant expenditure which would exist where a claimant, because of a former partner's failure to meet relevant costs, had to meet those costs in order to continue to live in the dwelling occupied as the home. In the instant case, the requirements of para7(7) of the Income Support (General) Regulations 1987 had been met and the claimant would be entitled to income support in respect of interest costs arising from loans which were secured on the property she was occupying as her home.
