Prisoners serving a sentence - Benefits you can't get - Serving a sentence

Your entitlement to most benefits stops while serving a custodial sentence in prison as a result of a criminal conviction. If you are claiming benefits and about to go into prison or you are on remand, you should contact the office that pays your benefit as soon as possible. This is to make sure that you are not overpaid any benefits that you are not entitled to while you are in prison.
