    Hi, robinhood,

    I thought you already applied for UC or am i wrong? If you have already applied when did you apply and have you received your first payment yet?

    I know you were previously claiming housing benefit to help pay your rent? If you've applied for UC then this will stop 2 weeks after you apply for UC.

    Not sure where you are in your application but i'll gladly help you further once i know.

    I'm going through the procedure of claiming iniversal credit.  I've had my first interview. now just sent back the capability for work questionnaire. there's are lots of forms to fill in but i have to wait for an interview for that now. and I will get paid any money until 22nd of November I am getting the daily standard living pip

    Are you sure you filled in the capability for work questionaire already? That seems rather quick to have been sent that as you haven't had your first UC payment yet. Usually a work coach requests that questionaire after about 10 weeks of claiming UC.
