    Hi @Mrslen36 ,
    Welcome to this Online Community!
    I think if you go to the jobcentre, that is not needed and will confuse the situation. You can get precise advice if you put a post on the forum 'talk to a benefits advisor'.

    Hi @Mrslen36, and welcome! I wouldn't think so, but if you're unsure you could call the UC helpline for clarification:
    Universal Credit helpline 
    Telephone: 0800 328 9344 
    Welsh language (make a claim): 0800 012 1888 
    Textphone: 0800 328 1344 
    Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm

    hi Mrslen

    PIP is a separate non means tested benefit and will be paid along side  UC

    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste
