PIP and losing your home
My son receives PIP and I am his carer. We live in a small rented flat and have had numerous issues, most recently we had 4 gas leaks since November, leaking windows, plaster falling of the walls and gas is still an issue when using the boiler. So we live with the gas switched off and an electric heater and use only one room. We feel increasingly unwell here and want to move. Our letting agent says to not have anything available, other agents all ask for applicants to be in paid work, which rules us out. We are so desperate to get out of here I am thinking of moving into a static caravan on a holiday park or even a campervan or such. Question: What would happen to our PIP and carer's allowance if we do no longer have a fixed address? (I tried ringing DWP but get disconnected each time.)
