    As you're claiming PIP then yes you can claim limited capability for work under UC but you'll need sick/fit notes from your GP. You can still work and claim this but the work you do could go against you. tax credits and UC are different benefits and the disabled equivalent for UC is limited capability for work and you have to go through a work capability assessment for this.

    Please get some face to face advice from your local CAB or welfare rights.
