Hi,

You should tell the DWP about any change that may affect your entitlement to benefits.

Any telephone calls made to/from the DWP should always be confirmed in writing, to avoid any problems with future benefit entitlement.

Hi,

I agree with CD. Confirm in writing what you told them and keep a copy of the letter and proof of posting. If you get any other benefits, such as housing benefit you need to inform the agencies that pay those as well.

Good luck,

Steve

but if it didnt effect your benefit and there was no proof you had told them would it be classed as fraud
