If you're a housing association tenant, we'll pay your benefit direct to your landlord every four weeks (if you've asked us to), or direct to your bank account every two weeks in arrears.If you're a private tenant, we'll pay your benefit direct to your bank account every two weeks in arrears.
Backdating in most circumstances is considered fraudulent and illegal. For instance, backdating a claim for a past period is taken as legal.
Options backdating is the practice of altering the date a stock option was granted, to a usually earlier (but sometimes later) date at which the underlying stock price was lower.
This is a way of repricing options to make them valuable or more valuable when the option "strike price" (the fixed price at which the owner of the option can purchase stock) is fixed to the stock price at the date the option was granted.
This would be for the period between when you want your award of Housing Benefit to start and when you actually make your claim.
If you are over pension credit age, the law requires us to automatically treat your claim for Housing Benefit as being made 3 months before we actually received your claim.
