i live in england

well its too confusing to say everything so will just say relevant stuff, thanks in advance for advice

my mum has a great work ethic and will always work full time

i recon i will be on benefits most of my life, i get p.i.p, esa, housing benefit

well how will this affect my benefits if we live together, seems we are 2 adults, family, but obviously not married

will i still get p.i.p?

will esa be stopped or will it be reduced??

housing benefit i assume will stop??

will mum be expected to pay bills for us both??

i know the obvious thing to do would be to ring the council but right now i really dont feel up to it, and the situation is darn right confusing

DLA/PIP is a disability benefit and is not means tested so that should not be affected. I don't think it can be taken into consideration re HB or other benefits.

If you live together HB will be, depending on income.

Not sure about ESA, it is income related. As an adult you are not a dependant of your mother. You will need to get advice on this.
