If I sign off of Universal Credit, will I still get help with my rent?
I have a question about Universal Credit; I currently receive full PIP & UC....I don't really want a job as I have worked for 28 years and last year I had my left leg amputated; but the DWP/Jobcentre keep pestering me to attend & I am unable to get a long term 'fit note' the most I've ever had is 3 months - If I sign off UC would they still have to pay my rent (like they do now?)...I appreciate that this would cost me money but it may be the only solution - or does someone else have any ideas?? All feedback/advice welcome...thanks!!
