    Hi Chris,

    You would lose that Severe Disability Premium of £62 ish per week because you will no longer be living alone. You won't be able to claim as a couple either, so you'll have to keep her out of your benefit money.

    This is a very complicated sitution and i would advice you to visit your local CAB who will be able to advice you correctly.

      You're not being victimised but unfortunately there's laws, especially when it comes to benefits. Please do give CAB a ring because your Council tax will be affected too, as will will no longer recieve the single person discount.
