Currently I am on UC, LCWRA and am in the tribunal process of PIP, if those 3 separate benefits are all given to me, what else am I entitled to? Can you have esa or a disability premium on top?

Full list would be appreciated, thanks

    HI,

    UC has replaced all the old legacy benefits such as Income Related ESA/JSA and also Income Support. There are no disability premiums payable with UC.

    I note from another thread that you live with your parents so no housing element paid with your UC claim. As far as benefits are concerned then if your PIP is successfully awarded at Tribunal then you'll be claiming all the benefits you're entitled to.

    Hope this helps and good luck with the Tribunal.

    I am on universal credit and get limited capability to work premium  which gives me more money on my universal credit because I have a disability

    Hi, yes that's the LCWRA element not a premium. That's what noobautist is already receiving.  Unless your claim started before April 2017 and then it could be the lower element which is LCW. There's no premiums available when claiming UC.
