If you are receiving benefits and your circumstances have changed then you must let us know straight away.

You can tell us about your changes online by completing the change of circumstances form.

If the change increases your benefit entitlement, and you notify us more than one calendar month after it occurred, your claim will be reassessed from the Monday following the date you notify us.

If you tell us within a calendar month of the change occurring, or if your benefit entitlement has been reduced, your claim will be reassessed from the date the change actually occurred.

If you delay telling us of any changes it may mean that you lose out on some entitlement or it could mean that you have been overpaid benefit and you will have to repay this.

When a claim is reassessed due to a change in circumstances, a letter will be sent to you explaining the reasons why your claim has been reassessed and detail any under or overpayment that there has been in your benefit entitlement.

If we have written to you to ask you to complete a review form

Please complete the Review form. This form is to be used only when we have written to you requesting you to complete it.
