    Universal Credit should really know where your actual address is. If you are homeless you can use a care of address as detailed in the government documentation Universal Credit and homeless people: guide for supporting organisations - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk).

    I won't beat around the bush here, as I don't want you to get into trouble, but providing incorrect information can lead to a penalty.

    You can use a c/o and that shouldn't be a problem. Aren't you currently using a c/o address now? as you mentioned this on a previous thread.

    The only thing you may have to be careful of is if the person is claiming any benefits and you're using their address.
    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.

    Thanks poppy:)

    Yes I am, all I can do is use c/o as I don't have a home, once and if I move I will contact housing there for help 🙏 not done it before, I have enquired then COVID etc but I remember them being very helpful.. :)

    I wrongly believed you were using your parents address as your actual address. That's on me, not you. As poppy says you can use the as a c/o address. 

    I hope you find a home soon, perhaps Shelter can help you with going through the local authority housing process once you're in Cumbria?

    Ok thankyou @Jimm_Scope I'm reading about that now, so just to Clarify if I moved, lengthy process as I'm not in good shape and would need to change docs hospitals etc etc :/ but if I did and used my dad's as a c/o it wouldn't effect his pension? I can't live there for personal reasons, but maybe i could stay there a night or two until I get sorted 🙏 would this be allowed? But yes shelter, first I will talk to them and perhaps they can help with other things 🙏

    You dad's state pension shouldn't be affected. I would check if he receives any other benefits.

    If he gets a council tax rebate for living alone and you move in that could possibly be affected. But using an address as a c/o should not constitute actually living there.
