September after children turn 16 and UC

Hi all,

I am wondering if anyone has experience of how DWP deal with it getting to the assessment period which includes the 01st September after a child’s 16th birthday?

If the child remains in education then it has no effect on UC.

What I am wondering with is how DWP approach decision making in these cases- in a situation where claimant has not notified DWP that child remains in education do they simply make a decision removing the child element for that child – or do they first suspend and ask for the information etc?
