    Hi,

    That will depend on circumstances and other income. UC is a means tested benefit so if you live with a partner that works then you would claim as a couple.

    All you can do is put all your details into a benefits calculator and see what it comes up with.

    Your PIP appeal won't affect UC because they're different benefits. Pop your details into a benefits calculator to see what if anything you could claim. Remember they are only as accurate as the information you put into them. https://www.entitledto.co.uk/

    If you're unable to do that then i'd advise a visit to your local CAB who will do a full benefits check on you.
