    I would be very cautious about using her address, if she's claiming pension credit then it could affect that. Are you homeless?
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    She says she gets £14.59 off them and it's pension credit with savings so if they found out she'll only loose the £14.59 am I right?

    If you explain you're only using it as a care of address then it maybe ok. Is there any reason why you can't use the address you'll be staying at?
    You said you're going from a joint to a single claim, will you still be living in the same house as your ex partner? If so then providing you're paying your share of the bills and living as a single person there shouldn't be an issue to claim as a single person. Of course it will be down to a decision maker to make the final decision.

    If you have a care of address then you don't need to give another address.

    I have until the end of the month we aren't getting and it's time to move on so it'll have to be a care of address and see where I go from there
