Do I need to tell you about changes in my circumstances?
Yes, you still need to tell us about any changes in your circumstances that might affect your entitlement to benefit. This can include a change in your income, your savings, if you move house, and if someone joins or leaves your household.
You should tell us straightaway. You may need to make a new claim for Housing Benefit. Any new claim that you make will usually be based on Local Housing Allowance rates.
