    You will be known as a mixed aged couple. His state pension will be deducted in full from any UC entitlement. Yes, he will still be entitled to the LCWRA element. How much your UC you will receive each month will depend on how much his state pension is and what your maximum UC entitlement is before any deductions.
    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.
