Moving in with my partner

Hello :)
I'm starting to plan to move in with my partner within the next few years and was wondering what would happen to my benefits when I declare that I am living with him? I am physically unable to work at the moment due to my disability and all of this is making me very stressed out.

Many thanks :)

    Hi there glad you have joined it isnt easy to answer this without knowing all the info 
    It will depend what benefits you get if your partner works and so on 

    You could try using a benefits calculator to enter the information 

    There are so many things to take into account

    HI,

    A few years time could make a lot of difference with benefits so my advice is to get advice a few months before you move in, this way you'll know exactly how you're benefits will be affected based on circumstances at the exact time.
