Not reporting to Universal credit my maintenance loan amount!!

Hello, I am a disabled person who receive UC with limited capability for work and I also receive PIP due to my disability. Unfortunately I am really struggling financially ; I’m at my first year of University and because of my financial struggle I have decided to apply for the maximum amount of the maintenance loan which is £10.158. If I decide to don’t report at all my maintenance loan amount to Universal Credit what will happen? They will find out themselves automatically? And if so how? And what will happen in that case?

Hi there,

We don't have any say over Universal Credit, or how they make their decisions.

We'd suggest speaking to your local benefits office: they'll be able to offer you help with this.

Thanks, Graeme
Not sure that telling the benefits office you’re thinking about committing benefit fraud is the best course of action.

I would just declare it rather than stressing yourself that they’re going to find out.
