Hi, thanks for your question. Failure to notify regarding a change of circumstance in relation to benefits is a criminal offence and is considered fraud. Punishments can include a fine and imprisonment. Furthermore, if there are any payments made when your circumstances changed, which you would not have qualified for, then this is considered an overpayment and you will be pursued for repayment of this.Please provide a positive rating if you found this information helpful.
