I was put in lwcra on 21 May after a fight hard time . Finally I can sleep , well without them questions like how can I do a job when u know in your heart it's not in you , I know I could not work I know it . Anyway I got a uc50 on 29 May for work assessment  Do I have a entitlement for pip element , I read I do but rang was told it's not true. Can anyone advise . Thanks John

    The question looks straight forward, are you claiming PIP, either you are and have documented proof or you are not claiming or have not applied. But the DWP will know by the bank payments which benefits you are claiming  and being paid for. Best wishes john.
