Hi, my name is tremarge78!

I am 52 year old female, with fibro and depression. I live alone as my partner has recently died. I need help with benefits and work. I have found the jobcentre unhelpful. I want to work part time for myself but I am on ESA in the support group and very confused over the permitted work rules!

    Hi tremarge78,

    The permitted work rules can be a little bit confusing particularly for people who want to take up self-employment. I would be happy to give you some information if you could let me know what it is specifically that is confusing you.

    Best wishes

    Thanks Debbie, I am confused as to whether I need to get permission or whether I just need to inform them, of what I am doing. Tremarge78
