    Hi,

    It won't affect it at all because when claiming LCW you have a work allowance and can earn a certain amount without it affect any of your UC payments. You'll just receive less money if you don't work because you won't receive any wages.

    Hi again poppy
    its a joint claim but my husband works.
    will we still get a standard rate?
    sorry if I sound thick

    You still get the standard rate. What you get each month will depend on your husbands earnings each month. Best thing to do is to use a benefits calculator and put both of your details into that. https://www.entitledto.co.uk/
