    Hi there @Gazelle thanks for your question :) PIP has no impact on rent, so you'll need to keep paying it as normal. 

    Can I ask if you're receiving any other benefits? You might find it helpful to visit Shelter, who have information on managing rent if you might be struggling.

    Is there anything we've missed that you'd still like help with?

    There will be no non dependent deductions for housing benefit or housing element of UC if your PIP includes the daily living part. 

    Are you claiming any other benefits? If so which ones? Do you currently live alone?
    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.
