Hi, my name is twisty65! Permitted work and housing benefit

twisty65 Member Posts: 1 Listener
hi have been on esa ( income related for sometime now) due to severe stress anxiety etc,
but may have chance to do 14 hours a week in a nice relaxed atmosphere with not many people.
have read rules on permitted work but am getting conflicting advice ref housing benefit if I do these 14 hours.some say it is disregarded income as on esa some say they will take this into account,so am very worried and even thinking that if offered position will turn it down because of this,and if it would trigger an esa review.as could not cope with more hours as I get so stressed,
help appreciated
