Reduction of the advance payment period

             (1)  A person's advance payment period is the period worked out using the following Method statement if:

                     (a)  the person has received a mobility allowance advance; and

                     (b)  the amount of the advance was calculated on the basis that the person qualified for mobility allowance under section 1035; and

                     (c)  the person qualifies for mobility allowance under section 1035A, during the period of 26 weeks starting on the day on which the person qualified for the advance; and

                     (d)  this section has not previously applied to the person in relation to the same advance.

Method statement

Step 1.   Work out the number of days that, at the time of qualification under section 1035A, remain from the period of 26 weeks referred to in paragraph (c) (counting the day on which that qualification occurs as a whole day).

Step 2.   Multiply the result under Step 1 by the amount worked out under the following formula:

             

              If the result is not a whole number, round the result down to the next whole number.

Step 3.   Subtract the result under Step 2 from the result under Step 1.

Step 4.   Subtract the result under Step 3 from the number 182. The result is the number of days in the person's advance payment period.
