Can anyone tell me when I am NATURALLY MIGRATED ACROSS TO UNIVERSAL CREDIT
and I receive SDP and EDP what will happen when I become retirement age at 66 ,three years time?
Does my claim for Universal Credit carry on ? or do I claim Attendance Allowance
I am very confused 
Also what about PENSION CREDIT?

    When people start moving across it's called managed migration. Naturally migrating means you move across because a change of circumstances prompts a move, which won't happen for those claiming SDP until the transitional support protection is in place sometime this year.

    UC like ESA is a working age benefit, so if you are claiming UC when your state pension age then it will stop and you'll claim your state pension instead.

    As you're claiming PIP you will remain claiming it for as long as you qualify for it, so Attendance Allowance doesn't apply to you. PIP/DLA/AA are not part of UC.

    For the SDP then this is payable as part of pension credit, which you'll need to claim separately to your state pension.  You'll lose the EDP because it's only payable to those claiming ESA.
