UC SDP – Transitional Element Reducing Over Time


Can I check that I have correctly understood how the SDP transitional element may reduce over time?  Reg 55 (UC (TP) Regs) says that from the second assessment period, the transitional amount is reduced by any increase in the other elements included your UC, except increases in the childcare element.

Am I correct in saying that the addition of housing costs (for example) to a UC claim that had a Transitional Element, would erode the transitional element, penny for penny (to zero, if housing costs are more than the transitional protection)?
