Need to move local authority area
My daughter wants me to move closer to her so she can help me better. I moved back to this area 100 miles from her due to stalking 18 months ago but I’m struggling without her support But she’s now in a different part of our original county so I think I’d be safe to be nearer her now. Not sure I can manage it. Because it’s universal credit now would I have to apply for full universal credit or can I keep Esa and pip and only apply for housing benefit elements assuming I find either a private let or local authority.My housing support worker here is worried i won’t be able to comply with universal credit requirements due to my mental health problems. I’m still waiting for therapy in this area but am seeing physcicatric doctor and nurse. If I move it would be different local authority. I’ve only just been awarded pip for first time for my fibro and my anxiety illnesses and am on income based esa plus housing allowance. I thought transitional stuff was being talked about should I get transferred to ucredit but that is in my current area I presume. I’ve heard nothing yet about being transferred off esa etc to universal credit as I’ve not changed circumstances apart from moving.
