    If your claim started sometime during the pandemic then this will be just a random check to make sure everything is correct with your UC. Nothing to worry about at all. They are contacting some people that claimed during this time when checks for ID etc were relaxed during the pandemic.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Good afternoon @owenhayley and a warm welcome to the community. 

    As @poppy123456 mentions, lots of people who claimed during the pandemic are receiving these messages and calls as random checks, it doesn't necessarily mean that there is a problem with your claim.

    Good luck with your call from the review team and please let us know how you get on.
