Thank you for waiting I can give you some advice here. When you change over to UC they just do an automated move. What you really need to do is have a proper assessment of what you are are not entitled to. You may entitled to different benefits which you are not aware off due to the automated transition, this has happened a lot.
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.
