17. Foregoing Entitlement

A Member, upon giving notice in writing to the Chief Financial Officer, may elect to forego any part of his or her entitlement to an allowance under the Scheme.

Allowances foregone, must still be reported by a Member to the DWP when claiming DWP Benefits, as it may affect their entitlement. They should also report this to the Housing and Council Tax Benefit Section if they are in receipt of Housing Benefit and/or Council Tax Benefit.
