@Lou67 I will be staying with the same local authority..😉

@OverlyAnxious If that's the case then I believe you do lose one of your premiums if you in the support group..
I haven’t heard that it wasn’t on the news about everybody moving to Universal credits from esa .
OverlyAnxious said:..Yes, you lose SDP if in support group, live alone and have no carer.
OverlyAnxious said:It's been on the cards since Universal Credit first came out.
@OverlyAnxious Losing £66.95 per week ain't all that bad?That's absolutely ridiculous how they can take that away..People will be struggling even moreso...
I calculateESA standard £74.35, enhanced disability premium £17.10 plus support group £39.20 plus SDP £66.95 = £197.60/weekUC standard £409.89 plus LCWRA £341.92 plus £SDP transitional element £120 = £871.81/month which is equivalent £201.18/weekThe UC figure includes the £20/week temporary uplift. The SDP element will reduce as any other element increase effectively freezing the UC maximum amount until the SDP element is fully eroded.
OverlyAnxious said: Has there been any update on the end of the £20 uplift yet? It would be a £15 drop without that.
