Universal Credit: MS sufferer and her carer left without money for weeks


While I agree that the rollout of Universal Credit (UC) is a shambles and the lengthy waiting period is too long 5 or 6 weeks is way too long and some are waiting even longer, why have they no welfare benefit income.

They have stated that they have Personal Independence Payment, which is not affected by UC, so they should still be receiving this.

Adam McLelland will also be entitled to Carers Allowance and while not much, being £64.60 per week, it is better than nothing.

If they are stating they do not have sufficient to live on, then that will be correct.
