    It depends on your situation and what area you're in. You may get ESA or universal credit if you're on a low income / can't work.

    Hi @annetteb

    You may get a top-up (called a premium) on the following benefits if you get PIP:
    • Housing Benefit.
    • Jobseeker's Allowance.
    • Income Support.
    • Working Tax Credit.
    • Employment and Support Allowance - but only if you get the PIP daily living component.
    • Pension Credit - but only if you get the PIP daily living component.
    The best thing to do is to fill out the benefits calculator that can assess what you could be entitled to.
