Hello I have fibromyalgia and Cfs and my wife cares for me and just found out we are pregnant , my mind is now gone in to overdrive particularly because the confusion over universal credit 

I'm in support group currently does any one know if I wil be forced onto universal credit because if this happens they will make me look for work I can't cope with , I struggled with voluntary 

Can anyone help and see if the cab try out my mind at ease

    Hi 91dan and welcome

    Are you in a live service area or a full service area ?

    As you are in the support group even if you do have to claim UC you should transfer to the LWCRA which is the same as SG

    If in doubt the try CAB for f2f advice

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

    Hello it's live for single people and full service from November although from December they are not to accept New claimants . 

    So change if circumstance at that time may mean that we will go down the normal route.

    However I'm hearing bad things about the equivalent support group making them work , I couldn't cope a d I can't cope with out my wife 

    I think in time I will go to cab for advise . But if you know anything else , I would appreciate it
