    Will a move to a UC area interfere with current maximum eligibility hb (enhanced pip element)?
    I'm aware reassessment may occur which should protect personal payments. But, housing might be affected?

    With a very few exceptions, all new claims for HB must instead be processed as UC claims. Having three children or more under 18 is the main one, but there also exceptions for those who are in care, custody or supervision of some kind.
