Hi I am trying to find information on what happens if a claimant is in receipt of UC LCWRA and moves home into a different area, different jobcentre etc. Will the current jobcentre send the claim details to the new one when the address is updated in journal? Will the payment date remain the same? I can't find anything online that answers this. Is there a UC guideline anywhere that covers all this that claimants can access? Any help appreciated.

 If you update your address, it does not change LCWRA or payment dates or assessment periods.

 

Obviously if your claim covers Housing rent, if you change address, the Housing will be for the new address from the date you report new address.

 

And if your new postcode comes under a different Job Centre and different DWP Service Centre, your claim may be administered by different DWP staff.

 

To report the change on your claim online, click on report a change of circumstances and complete the where you live and what it costs section.  You can only do this on the day you move or as soon as possible after you move and not before you move.

Thank you Unclebulgaria67, so the change of address postcode etc once reported on the claim will automatically refer it to the new dwp staff/service centre. This is what I hoped would be the case just checking as need to ensure of what should happen. The dates were the main concern as payment dates relied on etc. 

 

Thank You.

Yes new postcode area if this is not within current job centre area will allocate to a new job centre that covers your new postcode.
