    I he’s your partner then you will need to report a change of circumstances and tell them you’re living with him. You will then be sent a linking code to join both claims together.

    If you are both claiming the LCWRA element then you will only be entitled to 1 element and not 2, your UC will also include the standard couples element and any other elements you’re entitled to.

    Are either of you claiming either PIP daily living, DLA mid/high rate care or ADP daily living? 
    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.

    Hi @orville70, welcome to the scope online community :) I hope you're doing well, as Poppy says it matters if you will be living as a couple or not. Let us know if there are any other questions you have too :)

    If you are just friends then it won't affect your UC. Does your friend claim for help with the rent in with their UC.

    Just for clarity, there's no middle rate care for PIP, it's either standard or Enhanced.

    Your single claims will continue but you maybe asked if you’re in a relationship.

    No, not for UC. Many people live together as just friends and continue claiming UC as single people.  Even those that were a couple and now seperated can claim UC as single people, even if they live together but would highly likely be asked for proof that they are not living together as a couple.

    What sort of proof would they require for universal credit to proof you are not a couple  ? I live with my husband whom is my full time carer however we do not have a relationship and haven't had one for over 2 yrs now,  we have our own bedrooms but basically live together through pure convenience for both of us , I could never manage to live alone and he would have no were to live if he wasn't here so it is beneficial in that scene to live together but no longer In a relationship type of situation,  we still claim uc together but I see no point in that at all since we stopped having a relationship over 2 yrs ago! We get on better now than we did together ❤️ 🙌 I have wanted to approach uc regarding our situation but how could we actually provide proof it's just pure convenience to be under the same roof ???

    You maybe ask to send evidence that you live as single people paying your own share of the bills. For example, energy, food, rent (if you pay it) and your own bank accounts. They may also ask either of you what you're doing to find somewhere else to live, although you said you're not doing that.
