    @susan48,Not sure as all my benefits are sorted now but I did get a txt with reference to mailing them some information. I would give them a call and ask how you register for txt alerts and notifications I am sure it may only be a simple issue of giving your Mobil number.

    They asked when I applied which number I wanted as my point of contact. It was set up that way, only with pip though. 
    Bear in mind that straight away tells them you have one. I don't know if that led to the questions I got at the assessors thing that asked what I used it for. 
    Hindsight I didn't say what I should have but I'm not going to lie. 
    Do not follow me, I don't know where I am going.
