Encourage all members of the family group to file an application when the maximum
benefit provisions apply. See information on numbers of claimants filing in RS 00203.055 in this section and information on child entitled on two or more ERs in RS 00203.060.
In some instances, it may be disadvantageous for all members to file because of the
rounding-down provision. For a discussion on how to inform a claimant of the advantages
and disadvantages of filing a formal application, see GN 00201.005C.
