Normally, it is just to ensure you are receiving the amount of money you are entitled to.

You may receive a letter asking you to attend a meeting or asking you questions. It is crucial that you answer the questions as honestly and accurately as possible. You will be asked to confirm details such as:

  • Who lives you with
  • If your working hours have changed
  • If your health as improved
  • Any other changes to your circumstances that affect the money you are entitled to

Gather any proof you can, such as bills that show your partner’s address as being different to your own or a doctor’s letter that confirms there have been no changes to your health.
