How is Housing Payment.

What is the difference in payments at UC if I didn't have a Support Group before, at the moment I received the ESA Award - Support Group.
Earlier on LCW I had only 800 GBP housing payment, and how will it be now if the payment was always 1000 GBP unchanged.
Does it matter why I haven't received the entire payment before ?, now I get full Housing Benefit payment on LCWRA.
Which mates will I receive in full from ESA ? and what will I get from UC ?

    Looking at your other thread you are receiving New style ESA Support Group which is £111.65 per week. This amount is deducted £1 for £1 from your UC payment.

    For UC you'll receive the standard allowance which differs depending on age, then the LCWRA element on top of that which is £336.

    Your housing element will depend on your circumstances, if you live alone this will be the 1 bedroom rate of local housing allowance for your area. You can check what that is here by putting your postcode into this link. http://lha-direct.voa.gov.uk/search.aspx

    How much you receive from UC will depend on your circumstances.
