Document Why have I received an HC3 certificate when I applied for an HC2 certificate?

Each HC1 application form that we receive is assessed on an individual basis. The assessment is based on your age, living arrangements, your income and certain expenses you incur.

A letter showing a breakdown of your individual assessment is included with the HC3 certificate when it is issued. Please check this breakdown letter to see why you have received an HC3 certificate. An HC3 certificate has been awarded because your combined assessed weekly income is greater than your combined assessed weekly requirements.
