TOPIC: Pension Credit and DLA during holiday o/side EEC

Pension Credit and DLA during holiday o/side EEC 7 years 5 months ago #13226

  • graeme
I am 62 years old and in receipt of PENSION CREDIT and ( DLA Middle Rate Care ) for 2 years plus. I have the chance to visit family abroad outside the EEC for 2 to 3 months holiday, Is it correct that as I am staying less than 13 weeks I do not have to inform DWP in advance. Reason I ask is I am always reluctant to contact them in case it might trigger a review.
All advice will be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks, Graeme
