Will I get less on UC?
Currently I am in receipt of income-related ESA (support-group element) and receive £80.70 per week. I also get £110.75 per week (contributory element). My other benefits are PIP and receive £82.30 per week (enhanced rate for daily living needs), no mobility award.
I know that Universal Credit is rolling out in my Surrey area of Woking since Feb 2018 and tried working out how much less I will get on UC as anticipating the worst. I don't pay any council tax or rent and live in supported-housing, even the council pay for support-costs so am very lucky in that respect, yet am expecting a shortfall in my personal benefits on the whole.
Anyone with any mathematical and research skills on this matter will be most very appreciated.
