An application for the Household Benefits Package was received from the person concerned on 4 November 2019. The application was disallowed, as the person concerned is under age 66 and is not in receipt of a qualifying payment. I am further advised that the person concerned does not qualify for a widow(er)’s concession arrangement as their late spouse/partner was not in receipt of the Household Benefits Package prior to their date of death.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
