Outright Homeowner and Universal Credit

We're waiting for Ms K Sutton to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

Please can you clarify the following-

I am currently claiming income related ESA. I also receive PIP, high rate of both components with a severe disability premium. I own my home outright. I have no mortgage or ground rents as it’s a freehold property. I have been led to believe that as I do NOT require any
assistance with housing benefit, I wouldn’t be entitled to claim UC?

Therefore, my questions are simply-

1) Will I be able to remain on legacy benefits once UC migration is rolled out where I live?
2) If so, will this remain the case indefinitely?

Yours faithfully,

K Sutton
