whilst ordinarily there might be an obligation on you to inform cms so that they can make changes, currently under covid guidelines they are not making changes or recalculating due to loss of jobs, change of jobs, furlough, schools closing (fee refunds) etc etc.. (too many possible variations and no staff to do it, staff were redeployed to other areas such as job centre plus)..

Just keep in mind that at annual review this may come up and be revisited so it may be worthwhile setting aside some funds in case you have arrears or your payments increase..

I feel pity for that dude. Thank God I have no problems because of COVID. My online store was working and I still had income. Not so good as it was before, but not bad.
