    No, this isn't a change of circumstances that needs to be reported. You need to be very careful when reporting changes because they will send you more forms to fill in and return and another assessment is most likely.

    Before reporting any changes you need to make sure it's possible to score more points needed for a higher award. After surgery it's perfectly normal to struggle more for a while until you start to recover from that surgery.

    As your award is due to end in September 2024 i would expect you to receive your forms around January 2024, if you were awarded by DWP.
    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.
