    There are so many abbreviations we can't possibly list them all. As janer says, can you list those you are having difficulty with. Here are some that you may be most likely to come across
    PIP - Personal Independence Payment
    UC - Universal Credit
    nsESA - new style Employment Support Allowance
    WCA - Work Capability Assessment
    LCW - Limited Capability for Work
    LCWRA - Limited Capability for Work and Work Related Activity
    SSP - Statutory Sick Pay
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
