Hello,

having seen another thread about getting a certain amount of money, i am therefore wondering if it's moral and ok for me
to spend the money i get from benefits for things like a new laptop and/or tablet.
I get around £750 or something like that, from universal credit and £220? or around £200 from PIP.

I think it is moral and ok, it’s your money to do with what you want. But save some and or invest it, eg. In Bitcoin or pension

PIP money is supposed to cover the additional costs associated with an illness and/or disability.
