Strange question.

Hi all, I’m not sure if anyone could give me an answer for this one, but if I moved out of a supported accommodation into a place of my own, can this effect my p.i.p benefit. 

My health condition hasn’t changed, but needing to move. 

I also really find I don’t get any assistance where I live.

    Hi,

    No, it won't affect your PIP. However, if you're claiming any other benefits then they maybe affected. I'd advise you to speak to your social worker, if you have one.

    You need advice before you do anything as you need to maybe sure you don’t accidentally trigger a UC claim.
    It wouldn’t trigger a claim would it because I would not being putting a claim in for UC. 

    Bit confused by your post

    I don’t have a social worker, and wouldn’t waste time and energy seeking advice from them as they have never had an answer to any of my queries.

    who should I consider contacting for advice, and what benefits could be affected?

    I would try CAB or welfare rights for advice

    That will depend on what other benefits you claim, and what PIP award you have.
