I was looking at the application and it asks if you’ve been out of the country in the last two years, I was wondering why this question is asked ?

for me it would be not but I thought it an odd question. 

Trying to read more about how this migration works if hugely headache inducing!

    That’s related to the habitual residence test. https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/benefits/getting-benefits-if-youve-recently-moved-to-the-UK/

    UC is complicated and confusing. I’ll be happy to answer any questions you have or you can read my guide that I completed here. https://forum.scope.org.uk/discussion/110560/uc-managed-migration-guide#latest
    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.

    Thank you Poppy! 

    I see, for some reason I thought it was to do with holidaying. Im guessing they are not interested in short breaks.

    Thanks for the guide I will be giving it a good read.

    dreading this impending migration.

    Thank you so much for helping us all!

    You're welcome. When claiming UC you are allowed out of the country for up to 1 month. However, if you're a job seeker then you will be expected to continue with your commitments while away.
