Should I be worried PIP and lcwra reports

Hello

After waiting nearly 8 month for a decision I was award pip high rate for both. 

I recently applied for a WCA and was luckily awarded LCWRA. 

However I asked for a copy of my assessment report and it says it used my PIP claim assessment report (even though I didn’t send it) as evidence, can they do this? 

More worrying for me it says I live with my husband and adult son.

Me and my husband haven’t lived together for 5 years and my son is 17.

I’m very worried they’re going to say I shouldn’t be on a single claim and that it’s going to cause trouble with my UC and my council tax. 

Do I message them and explain? What do I do?

    Hi and welcome,

    Although they are different benefits with different criteria for most of the descriptors, there are some similar things on both. For example, i claim PIP Enhanced mobility and scored 12 points for moving around. I'm also in the Support Group for ESA (identical to LCWRA) i'm in this group for mobilising.

    They do use the reports sometimes from one benefit to another. I wouldn't worry too much about what's written in that report about you living with your husband. If they do happen to ask questions in the future then just send evidence that he's not living with you. As for your son, although he's 17, that's almost an adult.

    Would i message them? no, i would just leave it as it is.
