    Hi,

    For PIP it's a simple change of address and nothing more. For any other benefits you maybe claiming then it will totally depend on what exactly you're claiming.

    This could be a problem. Whether or not you can claim for housing benefit once you've moved will depend on your circumstances. New claims for HB can only be made in very specific circumstances. A current claim for severe disability premium is one of them or living in supported housing.

    If none of those apply to you and you're moving to a different local council then you'll need to claim Universal Credit for help with your rent.

    You're welcome. Yes, staying with the same local council means you'll be able to stay on housing benefit.
