Does anyone know if the £20.00 pw increase in UC starting on 06.04.20 is only for claims made on or after that date or will it apply to existing claims?

I would be very surprised if it was only for new claims.

The legislation for the WTC increase has already been published, and that is clear it applies to everyone.

Definitely for all - it will be first seen in payments made on 12th May, reflecting assessment period 6th April to 5th May.
