    LCWRA is part of UC and increases your maximum UC entitlement by £416.19/month. This amount is the new annual increase amount and before that it was £390.06/month. 

    Your pension will reduce your UC £1 for £1. 

    Whether there’s now any entitlement to UC will depend what your maximum entitlement is. If it’s less than £900 there’s still no entitlement. If it’s more than £900 there will be some entitlement. 


    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.

    Hi @blueboy23, welcome to our community :) I don't think I can answer much better than Poppy has! It does depend on what your maximum entitlement is. You can let us know and we can help you work it out possibly.

    I will move this over to our UC category incase you do have any further questions 

    They/Them, however there are no 'wrong' pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with
