    Good Morning,
    I am looking for some advice please.
    My partner and myself are both on benefits due to illnesses/disabilities and we both claim U.C, Carers and PiP.
    My PiP is used for a mobility vehicle so we are both able to get around and away from the boredom of the house and my partner gets our UC topped up with lwcra.
    Now the thing is I have mental health issues and I'm not afraid to admit this but I have gotten it into my head I am fit enough to go back to work. I have been and spoke to an employer who is happy to employ me. We understand (took a while for my partner to get me to understand) due to this I will loose the carers allowance for my partner, we will loose the UC due to me working but the thing we aren't sure about is does my partner loose her lwcra and what happens to my PiP (mobility vehicle)? 
    Can anyone please help
