    Hey @jwalsh as Noman has said, going overseas for 7 days is no problem at all. Are you going anywhere nice?

    It depends what benefits you're claiming. For PIP, no you don't but if claiming UC and you have work commitments then yes you will need to inform them. You will be expected to continue with your commitments while you're away.

    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.
