you are unlikely to find any law books on the subject. Benefits etc are covered by regulations that change frequently. Pension credit is a benefit and you have to be resident in the UK to qualify regardless of the circumstances. If the claimant lives elsewhere then she is eligible to claim benefits there .

oh and the rules are in the State Pension credit act 2002 and the regulations made under it see here http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2002/1792/contents/made

After having had received your above response to my very FIRST question I have already submitted another question. I think this has been submitted on 28 or 29 June. It is regarding the benefit having been received believing it having been received legallly, bonafidely and in own right and with this in mind it having had been spent out by the recipient. The question is what is the situation of the recipient if the payer claims the money having had been paid wrongfully and therefore the payer would want to claw it back as an overpayment. My opinion is that the payer is not entitled to claw it back. YOU HAVE ALREADY COLLECTED THE FEES FOR THIS SECOND QUEWTION. PLEASE REPLY NOW; IT IS MUCH OVERDUE. RS XXXXX 2 JULY 2013

I saw your additional question but I had not responded to it because as Nicola explained if you do not give my answers a favourable rating I get nothing for my time. The experts are wholly independent of the site and whilst you may have paid a deposit I am not paid unless I get a favourable rating. As you had not rated my original answer I was , as you can understand, not minded to take time to answer another one. Also to be honest you attribute relatively low values to your questions so it does not encourage experts to answer I am afraid.
