Hi can anyone please advice me I have a dilemma. Four weeks ago my daughter became my carer as I get severe disability premium. Three weeks ago I moved house to be nearer to her. I didn't realise I had to make a new claim for Universal credit as I was no longer in receipt of SDP. I thought there was nothing wrong and that my claim for ESA with the SDP meant I did not have to make a new claim and only found out today when a lady from the council phoned me about my rent. I know if I move to universal credit my money will drop and I won't get nearly as much to live on. If my daughter stopped being my carer now and I got my SDP back could I continue on my ESA claim would this be allowed. I'm so scared of getting things wrong and all this has sent my anxiety threw the roof leaving me in agony. I broke down when she told me on the phone. I live in fear of getting things wrong with the DWP please can anyone help me
