    Hi @JANNYBEEN Welcome to the community, it is nice to have you on board. I am sorry you are having to change over benefits due to a house move but try and think positive you would have to change over eventually when the whole nation moves to UC.

    Is there anything specific you want to know about UC, I am not an expert but can point you in the right direction
    Here to help with my experience in hunan resources and employment rights
