    Hi i got my backdated money within one week of the decision.

    Reading your thread this is a new claim for you, if so its normally backdated to when you first made your original claim. 

    Hope this helps ?

    Payment should have already been made and it take 3-5 working days to go into your bank so most likely Monday or Tuesday next week.

    @tinka1992 may i ask if you claim any other benefits, if so which ones do you claim please? Your PIP award may entitle you to extra money but this will depend on your circumstances.

    You were advised correctly, there's no disability premiums available with UC. If you're under 35 and live alone then you'll receive the 1 bedroom rate of local housing allowance for your rent instead of the shared rate. Otherwise it will remain the same.

    Other things your award will entitle you to will be things like a CEA card for the cinema to take a carer for free, free carer entry into lots of attractions when showing your PIP award letter.

    No, you don't need to inform DWP about medication change.

    You'll be entitled to 1 bedroom rate for your rent. As UC is a monthly payment then any loan repayment reduces the whole amount. Also because you work, if you don't have limited capability for work with UC and you don't have dependent children then you won't have a work allowance. This means that your UC payments will be reduced because of your earnings.

    One thing i did forget to mention because you're claiming the daily living part of PIP your partner can claim the carers element in UC. No claim for carers allowance is needed. All you need to do to claim this is report changes on your journal and tell them your partner is caring for you for at least 35 hours per week. This will increase your UC amount by £160 per month.

    Not carers allowance. It's called carers element and there's no earnings threshold to be able to claim this, like there is with carers allowance. You also don't need to claim carers allowance to be able to claim the carers element.  See link. https://revenuebenefits.org.uk/universal-credit/guidance/entitlement-to-uc/elements/#Carer element Providing your partner doesn't claim the LCWRA element then they can claim the carers element.
