When my partner & I marry will we need to re-apply for PIP & UC and get reassessed?

Hello everyone  :) I wanted to know when I get married to my partner and update UC and PIP about the new change - what will they do? Will I need to re-apply again and be reassessed? Will my PIP and UC be suspended? My partner and & have a joint claim and I am not changing my name - all will stay the same - other than we will be married. We already live together and it really is for legal purposes as we are both getting older. I am really stressed about it all. If anyone can shed any light on this I would be so grateful ! :)
