    Savings of less than £6,000 are ignored and you do not need to tell them your savings when it's less than this amount. Having said that because you don't know where they got that amount from i would put a message onto your journal and tell them.
    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.

    Sorry just on this it says at the start of the claim you told us your savings were 4900 do I still need to tell them.

    What it is I don't want to start a case where I need to send all of my bank statements as I have changed banks 3 times this year to get the free £200 for switching so don't have the statements

    As i said, savings of less than £6,000 are ignored. If it gives you peace of mind then tell them, otherwise you don't need to. If that's what you had in savings when you claimed UC providing they didn't go over the £6,000 on the last day of your assessment periods since then, you will be fine.
