Hi ! I am trying to find up to date info on inheritance. I currently receive PIP, LCWRA, and UC. The inheritance will be used for a house. Are any of the above benefits affected ? Thank you.

    LCWRA is part of UC. As UC is a means tested benefit then if you have savings/capital of more than £16,000 all means tested benefits will end. You need to report the changes onto your journal.
    PIP is not affected. If you're claiming Council Tax reduction this will also be affected and you need to report the changes to your Local Authority.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
