    There's no maximum amount of hours you can work while claiming UC with LCWRA. However, if the work you do contradicts the reasons why you were found to have LCWRA then it could go against you at your next review. 

    You can also use a benefits calculator to check if there's still any entitlement to UC with your increased earnings. 
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    That will be treated as capital, not earnings. Unless your capital is more than £6,000 it will have no impact in your UC.

    Capital would be any savings or properties you own that you don’t live in.

    Yes a loan is capital and if they increase your capital to more than £6,000 at anytime then this will affect your UC. There will be a deduction of £4.35/month for every £250 or part thereof over £6,000.

    The maximum limit is £16,000 before entitlement ends.
