    This will be your problem, your daughter is sofa surfing and using your address. This could cause you problems with housing benefit, if you're claiming it. Just be honest during the interview and answer all questions. There maybe an overpayment to pay back while your daughter has been living with you. The 3 days of work you also done could affect your benefits too but it will depend which benefits you claim and how much you earned.

    All changes of circumstances must be reported.

    A compliance interview is often random and may be connected to nothing at all. Like mystery shopper exercise if you like. If there was a specific concern then you would usually get called in for an interview under caution so maybe take a breath before panic sets in.

    @poppy123456 It’s not accurate to say ALL changes of circumstances must be reported. Only ones which might reasonably be considered to impact entitlement. So, for example, unless someone else has decided to grass you up then a 19 year old sofa surfer on means-tested benefits would not impact any of your benefits as there would be no non-dependent deduction. 

    Most likely this is a random compliance interview and should be treated as such.
