    you can log into your universal credits account, and they have some options in there about sending messages to them or a help line.

    Is that the reason they have stopped the universal credit, because you were out of the country for 16 days? Or did you have a phone appointment or something in that space of time you could have perhaps missed? I’ve been on uc before myself, but never been away during so I can’t be much help there. Maybe you’re supposed to let them know you’re going. As has been said above, either log into your account, and if not register to make one, and ask some questions in the journal about what’s happening and why.

    Good luck
