Universal credit help please
Hi I was recieving pip for 6 years enhanced rate, we were on income support until I scored 0 on a reassement we were told to apply for universal credit which we have however just before the tribunal pip overturned their decision awarding me enhanced daily and standard mobility, our online account for our first universal credit payment has updated and we are getting a standard allowance (joint) housing and one child. However my partner claims carers, i have provided sick note but not had my assessment yet. There is no top ups anything on the payment. First payment is £576. As they have detucted my partners carers and social fund loans, after rent we have £200 left. But I thought we got extra for the carers and i got extra because I am sick? This has made me really worse off because PIP scored me 0 then overturned it! Is there anything I can do, should we be getting a top up can i apply for esa now my pip is back, we cant not cope on 576 a month with 370 rent! I have messaged but it takes them over 2 weeks to respond! Thank you
