    They can't report a change until after it's happened. If they are not currently living today as a couple and they live together after they are married then that's when the changes need to be reported. 

    Getting married isn't a change of circumstances in itself that needs to be reported if they are already living together and claiming as a couple. 
    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.

    Hey @bigaxedwarf, as Poppy says being married doesn't affect Universal Credit. Living together does however, if they are already living together they should have a joint Universal Credit claim. If they don't move in together until October then they can wait until then
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with
