UC and mixed age couples 2

Rather than hijacking this thread https://www.rightsnet.org.uk/forums/viewthread/17902/ I will ask here.

My client is approaching SPA in January, his wife is 10 years younger. He gets PIP but at the Standard Rate for DL and IR ESA with SG component, she gets CA and is a partner on the ESA claim.

I was going to advise them to claim UC now, so he would get LCWRA transferred across from his ESA claim prior to becoming a MAC in January.

I struggle to understand this MAC thing even now. Is this the correct advice?
