In later life our circumstances or situation can change and this can impact upon our benefits.
You may also, unfortunately, have to prepare for abrupt changes to benefits if you are bereaved by the death of your loved one.
Please speak directly to a benefits adviser if your changes of situation include:
- Beginning part or full-time study
- Starting work as a paid employee
- Being imprisoned
- Relocating to or from abroad
If ever you are unsure about a change in circumstances, please seek the advice from the Independent Welfare Changes Helpline on 0808 802 0020 or contact a local advice agency.
