Change of circumstances

You must tell us when your circumstances change

It is very important that you tell us about changes in your circumstances to prevent overpayments and make sure you receive the money that you are entitled to.

Examples of changes in circumstances that you must tell us about include:

  • Changes in income, other benefits/Tax Credit or in your savings
  • Changes to your rent
  • Changes in the number of people living in your household
  • Any period that you plan to be away from your home
  • Changes in the amount of childcare you pay

Please see our downloadable forms section for the documentation you need to complete.
