    Hi @angie1970

    I am sure that somebody more knowledgeable about DWP benefits will be able to assist you on here and will hopefully be able to answer you.. 

    Take care

    Hi,

    PIP maybe possible but it will depend on how your conditions affect you. PIP isn't awarded based on a diagnosis, it's how those conditions affect your ability to carry out daily activities based on the PIP descriptors.


    If you start a claim you'll need to send evidence to support it and this should state how your conditions affect you.

    Are you sending in fit/sick notes for your UC claim? If so have you been assessed for limited capability for work? or have you already been assessed?

    If your work coach hasn't referred you for a work capability assessment then you need to request they do this. You'll then be sent a work capability assessment form to fill in and returned with all your evidence. Once that's returned you'll most likely be sent for a face to face assessment as most people have them.
