My girlfriend and I currently get ESA payments as a couple and she is in the support group. My Girlfriend also get enhanced PIP for both elements and I receive Carers Allowance. My question is, should we convert to UC as it says we would be £31 a week better off???

    Hi @Andy1234. Only you can make that choice. Some people are better off under Universal Credit, but it can be difficult for some to receive their money monthly and manage an online account.
    If possible have your calculations double checked before you commit to switching.
