    Claiming PIP doesn't automatically entitle you to claim Universal Credit. Whether or not you're entitled to claim it will totally depend on your circumstances, such as savings/capital of more than £16,000 will exclude you from claiming. Living with a partner that works and other certain incomes like pensions etc. Very difficult to give any advice here because you haven't given any information.

    Hi @missalisonb. PIP is ignored as income for Universal Credit, so claiming PIP doesn't stop you being able to claim UC.
