Am I being investigated

Hi. I've been on LCWRA for 9 months, and have just received a message from Universal Credit to accept my commitments. It says, " To report any changes to my circumstances immediately, including returning to work". This is my first notification since December, but nothing has changed. Is this a routine occurance, or could this mean that an investigation is pending. I'm concerned as this came out of the blue.

    I'm sure I've had these Commitments messages out of the blue as well.  I strongly doubt it's anything to worry yourself about!

    It's nothing to worry about Patrick. They just get you to re-accept your claimant commitments every once in a while so that it is up-to-date. A lot of people are being asked to do this at the moment.

    Many thanks. That's very reassuring. Having had to fight them for over 12 months to finally get this benefit, I always worry when things like this happen.
