You must tell us straight away about any changes in circumstances for you, your partner, any dependant children or any non-dependant who lives with you.
You should report any changes to the Benefits Team without delay. All changes must be reported in writing either by letter to the Benefits Team or you can call at our reception desk to report the change.
If you are not sure if the change will affect your entitlement you should still tell us about it.
If you have been advised by your landlord that your rent has increased we will need you to complete the on line form below. We may require you to provide evidence of this.
Below are some examples of changes we need to know about:
We will need to see proof of the change. An original document, (for example an award notice), which we will photocopy and return to you without delay.
If your circumstances change and the change results in you receiving more benefit, you must report the change within one month of it occurring. If you do not, we will only re-calculate your entitlement for the Monday following the date you actually report the change. This means that you will lose out on benefit to which you could have been entitled.
If your circumstances change and the change results in your receiving less benefit you must still report the change immediately but we will recalculate your entitlement from the Monday following the date of the change and an overpayment will be calculated which you will be asked to repay. If you are not sure what changes to tells us about, or what proof to send, just ask.
Don’t forget to report any changes in your circumstances on time.
