Change of Circumstances


All of the following changes are examples of changes that will impact on the amount of benefit you receive;

  • An increase or decrease in your income or the income of anyone else living with you
  • Your child stops or starts studying full time
  • Someone else moves into your household
  • You change address
  • An increase or decrease in your capital/savings
  • Your Income Support/Job Seekers Allowance stops

You must tell us of these changes in writing. You should not rely on someone else (like your landlord, or the Job Centre or a friend) to tell us about a change affecting you or the other people living with you.
