HI.  My sons partner wants to move in with him. He has a job and is not on any benefits.  She currently lives with her mum.  She gets the LCWRA element of universal credit.  Will she be able to still get this when she moves in and registers her new address?  She seems to think she will loose this benefit if she moves out from her current address?  Does anyone know?  or who I can get in touch with to find out? thanks.

    Changing address is not the issue. Going from single to being half of a couple is.

    She would have to declare she has a partner. He would then have to claim UC so that the claim could be a couple claim. Whether or not any UC remains payable will depend on their joint finances,
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    They should use a benefits calculator to check if there will be any entitlement to UC. https://www.entitledto.co.uk/benefits-calculator/Intro/Home?cid=909f536a-df99-4b7e-b158-9a5c7e19ef77
