Examples of changes you need to tell us about include:

  • having a child
  • getting married, separated or divorced
  • children leaving school or finishing full-time education
  • starting or ending work
  • selling a property
  • earnings (including overtime, bonus or commission) changing
  • entitlement to any benefits starts or ends
  • going into or leaving hospital
