BR would remove a weight from your shoulders and you needn't worry about your benefits either.

Can anyone tell me where I can get a copy of the form you fill in online to go BR? I have been to Gov.uk but you have to stat the application process to get to the form and I dont want to do that yet. I want to read through everything first, I tried searching for a copy online but cant find one!!
Also if I was to go BR what about my bank account that my benefits are paid into, when will it get frozen and how do I go about getting money out or cant I?
Normally stuff like this I find really easy to understand but I just cant get my head around things at the moment.
Thanks very much

There is nothing to stop you from starting the application to get the info you need - you don't have to complete it. As to the bank account, I think they can freeze it but will open it again afterwards. You could always draw out any money you needed for day to day expenses until then.
