Quick background: I received PIP whilst at university, a few months later and I moved back home as I was too ill to continue my course (May 2017). As soon as I moved home, I claimed for ESA and asked them to update my details at the same time. This was all confirmed to me, and as my ESA letters arrived to the correct address I thought nothing more of it (I assumed that the databases were all interlinked). Fast forward to yesterday, when I got a call saying that a PIP letter had been returned to DWP and could I confirm my address. The operator thought I was still in my university town but also seemed to have my current address.
She said that it is all updated and that she has added a note explaining what happened, but I'm extremely worried now that they are going to accuse me of not reporting a change in circumstance.
Should I call back to confirm my details have been updated? Would explaining make things worse?
Thank you in advance, I'm so frightened.
