Does a partner moving in trigger a move from ESA to UC
So i'm looking at my partner moving in with me and am getting a lot of contradictory advice. I'm on ESA support Gp (contributions with income top up) and SDP. PIP enhanced for care and mob. I know my PIP will be unaffected and because of his earnings i will lose HB + CT. The confusion lies as to whether the change of circumstances of him moving in with me will trigger a move to UC to make a joint claim. I know i'll loose the income related add-on's and SDP, he earns 25k before tax etc... no not rich, but above thresholds so wouldn't be looking to claim UC for him. However i've also just been told that a change to UC with a partner will mean i lose the legacy 114.10 payment from my contributions. I am so confused right now!! Any one got any ideas??
