    you'll be able to get housing benefit and jobseekers allowance, just send the forms off when you get to Cardiff, although it can take a while

    I already got job seekers, will they give me housing benefit in cardiff, while on job seekers in llanelli?

    not really because you need to change over depending which authority you are located in. So when you move to Cardiff you need your jobseekers changed over to the Cardiff authority, but ultimately you should still receive jobseekers.

    edit: maybe I misunderstand, are you asking if you can have both at the same time in a single authority?

    How about phoning the jobcentre and asking an advisor directly?
