    The work and health programme has nothing to do with PIP. You don't need to be claiming any out of work benefits to join this. Details here. https://www.gov.uk/work-health-programme

    Can you please explain what you mean by this?

    Your sister being your Power Of Attorney will not stop you from claiming Universal Credit. What made you think that it would?

    Is it just PIP you're currently claiming? Do you have savings/capital of more than £16,000? If so then you're excluded from claiming all means tested benefits.

    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.
