    Your UC entitlement is based on your circumstances on the last day of each assessment period, which for you is 25th of every month. This means you will still receive your payment as a joint claim. 
    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.

    Aww lovely! I’ve got till the 6th to add my partner 
    I’ve done my rent increase so at least I’ve done it in time. 
    I thought I would have got part payment for being single and then as a couple. So I was unsure what would happen

    And I’ll still get all my elements as before?

    You can't receive a part payment for UC because that's not how it works. Yes, you will still be entitled to the same as before if nothing has changed.
