Higher rate pip can my husband still get a job

Hi my hubby gets higher rate pip. But he wants to find some work.  Is he allowed?

    You can work on PIP. As long as why you claim doesn't contradict your job. So, if your husband claims because he can't work 20 metres, it's not going to stop him from working in IT, for example.

    Yes He can. I did and as been 4 months and loving it. I needed to get back doing something. i use the pip for travel to work and get disabiity tax credits to top up wages. the Hardest part is finding a Employer to see past our Disabilities. but there are out there. wish your hushband and you all the best.
