Mixed age couple

Lots of information can be found on mixed age couples where.one is of a pension age who are no longer being able to choose pension credit or UC.

But, in terms of those already receiving pension credit we have had an enquiry where the mixed age couple, who are already in receipt of pension credit,  have asked if they can decide to claim universal credit instead?
If they can, does pension credit then stop, or is it deducted from the UC pound for pound as is the case with the state retirement pension?

Thank you
