    Hi @bobby123, you don't need to tell anyone at UC or PIP you're going on holiday. They would want to know if you were leaving the country for a long time, but two weeks should be fine 😊

    Yes I agree with Rosie. As you have LCWRA then you have no work commitments so you can go away without issues. If you're going out of the country the maximum time you can go for without it affecting your UC is 1 month.

    My daughter claims UC with LCWRA and we went away last year for 2 weeks, I didn't report changes to UC because there was nothing to report. We are also going again in September for 11 nights and I won't be reporting changes then either.

    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.
