    Hi, so I applied for universal credit some weeks ago and was approved - I even had an advance payment a couple of weeks ago. I was due to receive another payment on the 31st but today received an email notification for them. I checked my to-do list and it is saying I have to fill out my previous employment from July 2017 up to now.

    I am in receipt of PIP and have not worked during this time put when I simply try to put "0" in all the boxes it tells me to enter a valid figure. I do also claim carers on behalf of my mother as we look after each other for a couple of days per week despite myself living independently now but since these benefits as far as I was told don't have much of an effect on my claim and since it's specifically asking for employment history I would not need to declare this. The due date for this to be filled in is September 10th, over a week after my payment would be due so I'm unsure whether I would need to fill this in or not.

    You've probably got this sorted, but the easiest way to deal with this is message your adviser through your journal, explaining the situation and asking what to do. In my area at least, they are quite responsive through this method - and it documents your concern as well.
