    Hello @chloebear   Pleased to meet you welcome.

    Thank you for your question. I am unsure of an answer.

    I know a member of our team or community may be touch to answer.

    Have you had a look at our benefit advice lots of information . Hope that helps.

    Have you spoken to CAB or welfare rights might be able to advise as well..

    We are a supportive community who care and share.

    Plenty of new friends.

    Hope you can get an answer.

    Please take care.

    Hi,
    Simple answer is no. PIP isn't part of UC and would not prompt a move across.
