...being in the support group means your ESA won't be affected if you move areas.
Would they really force you onto uc if you were on Esa support group and housing benefit and had like 5 days Gap????
But it does as Esa would be taken from you actually if you were forced onto uc from housing benefit isn't that so??
I lived with my Parents last year from the 8th of March till around the end of September, and my benefits weren't affected, this was enforced due to the first and second lockdowns.
This is all new but I think you would need to do the following.
When you move to your mum’s and your tenancy ends then your HB ends. Your ESA continues but you are no longer entitled to SDP (unless your mum and any other adult family members also get a disability benefit).
You sign your new tenancy and move in.
You contact ESA and get SDP reinstated (assuming you meet the conditions).
Then you claim UC and your award should include the SDP transitional element.
Unlike the SDP itself, which is a fixed amount, the SDP transitional element is set at the start of the UC claim but will, in future reduce if any other elements payable increase. This means that if a future rent rise resulted in a higher housing element being paid it would also reduce the SDP element.
For a single claimant with LCWRA the SDP transitional element is initially £120/month.
