PIP warning as claimants could lose benefits due to hospital stays


Britons must report their change of circumstances to the DWP as soon as possible to avoid potential benefit fraud claims.

Benefit fraud is committed when someone claims benefits they are not entitled to, either by not reporting changes in their circumstances or by providing false information, which carries a maximum penalty of £5,000. 

However, it is equally important that Britons also tell the DWP as soon as they return home, when their PIP should start again. 

Citizens Advice urged: “Tell them even if you only go home for part of a day – they should pay you for that day.”
