    A complience letter means that DWP have either recieved info from someone that he hasn't declared all the info he supposed to, or it's to check hhe's claiming all the benefits he should be. If the person hasn't done anything wrong then there's nothing to worry about. The complience officer will most likely ask lots of questions and want to see bacnk statements in the very near future.

    Sorry to hear this @georginacathersides, I imagine it must be a lot of work and responsibility for you to care for him whilst in another relationship. As Poppy says, the compliance interview will likely just be to check that the circumstances you declared are still correct. I really hope it goes well for you both. Is there anything specific you're looking for advice on?
