    Hi @rachyb, welcome to the community!

    PIP is not means-tested, so working doesn't mean that you will lose the benefit..

    However, if what you do in your job goes against what you have said in your PIP claim (for instance, if you do some heavy lifting in your job but have stated for PIP that you're not able to), then this could cause some issues.

    I hope this helps!
