Universal Credit says PIP will not effect my housing element rate

Hi,

I have recently been awarded the Enhanced Daily Living Rate of PIP after 2 years of waiting for the appeal to go through and it is my understanding that being in receipt of this means that I should be on the One Bedroom Rate of Universal Credit despite being under 35.

Unfortunately, Universal Credit is claiming I am still only entitled to the Shared Accommodation Rate.

I have been put through a loop trying to sort the issue but despite it saying on the gov.uk site that I would be entitled to the higher rate they say that I'm not.

Can anybody help me with this?

Thanks,
Dante
