Have you previously made any application for universal credit?
Ok, so thankfully I have some good advice for you. When you move over to universal credit, there is no going back and as UC encompasses every benefits you may be entailed to a bit more, however, you may be entitled to a bit less also! so if you make the application and you get less then you can't go back to what you were on previously thus putting you at a detriment.
However, the best thing you can do is enlist the help of the Citizens Advice Bureau. They have appointed benefits advisers who are experts in this matter. If you go to them with all your documents then they will be able to assess the situation for you. The Citizens Advice also have programme called QBC this will allow them to input all of your information and do an assessment on your individual situation without having to contact the DWP. This QBC system will also be able to highlight and identify any benefits you may be entitled to but are not qualifying at the moment. If you application is rejected then the CSA can help you with any mandatory reconsideration as well as potentially provide you with representation at a benefits tribunal should this become necessary.
