Payment from UC

I received my UC on the 13th. Today I have received a payment of £31.78 into my bank and its referenced as being from Universal Credit. I am waiting for my LCWRA element but this was awarded in November and will not be paid until March. I am unable to call them at the moment but will be doing this afternoon but in the meantime I was wondering if anyone had any experience of info on this?

    We could only guess what the payment is for and only they can tell you that i'm afraid.

    Hi @lmkg1315, I hope you are able to ring up soon and be given more information. :)

    Thanks @poppy123456 & @Chloe_Scope! I gave them a call and they have said UC has made no payment to me and could it possibly be related to my PIP claim. I told them the reference in the payment is my NI number then it says DWP UC and that I though PIP and UC were 2 completely different payments so why PIP would use UC as a reference is a little confusing. That being said I'm about to give PIP a call because no one from UC can find out where it has come from! The search continues
