I got a letter this week from council asking about our son who finished college last summer. The letter asked for me to give details about his work etc, well I gave them this info last September because it was a change of circumstances, as we stopped getting child benefit. I get the daily living living component of PIP so my benefits are not reduced when having a non dependant living with me and my wife. I phoned The council and they said they didn't receive my letter, I have sent them a letter today giving them the info asked for but am worried that as they didn't receive my September letter things could get complicated, though I haven't received any benefits I am not entitled to, I have not committed any benefit fraud, it has taken 8 months for the council to write to me, for me to be aware of this, I am bipolar and disabled due to a road traffic accident 15 years ago and don't need this stress, anyone been in a similar situation?
