Report a Change in your Current Claim

When we work out how much help you get we take into account the people who live with you, your income and capital and any rent you pay. You must therefore tell us if any of these details change. Examples of changes are :

  • You start or stop working
  • Your working hours change
  • Your self employed earnings change so you need to complete a  Self_employment_form
  • Your child leaves education
  • Your state benefits change
  • Your private/occupational pension changes
  • Someone moves in with you
  • Someone moves out
  • Your rent changes
  • You move

These are not the only changes just examples. If you are unsure if you should tell us about a change then tell us anyway. We can accept online changes based on an authority from Chief Executive for Wealden District Council to use electronic facilities for benefit claims
