Can anyone offer some guidance on the following please? I have CP and was on Incapacity Benefit in Youth which was migrated to CB ESA and I am in the support group. I also get PIP at the higher rates for both components.

I have used some benefit calculators which say that I am actually now also entitled to UC because my capital has gone below £16K.

I understand that I can claim CB ESA and UC simultaneously but are there any pitfalls I need to be aware of in terms of needing a fresh assessment or will the support group entitlement mean it is a "paper" exercise without another ESA/UC50?

Also, can I update the UC people every month on how much my capital is if it goes up/down so they are aware or do they do this some other way?

Thanks in advance.
