Hi there. My partner is looking for a rental home as his house is being sold, but we are not having much luck finding anything. I have done the benefits calculator and the figures aren’t too bad, if we were to move in together if absolutely necessary..we have only been together a few months so really would rather not, just putting feelers out for what ifs in the future. My question is, if he did move in would he be added to my universal credits claim or would it be a new claim as a couple ? I remember on tax credits it was an entirely new claim rather than a change of circumstance.
