Permitted work - does applying trigger re-assessment?
Has anyone been re-assessed for ESA because they applied to do lower level permitted work?
My partner and I both get ESA (paid only to me, but for both). My partner is thinking of selling some digital files he's created, via a website. Obviously he would have to get permission to do this by filling in a Permitted Work form. The amount of money will be tiny and variable (no more than £5 in a good week, probably!). In other people's experience, does putting in a Permitted Work form trigger a re-assessment? My last 2 re-assessments have resulted in appeals, and we can't face that again - so if there's a chance of him being re-assessed because of applying to do this tiny bit of permitted work, he will just choose not to sell his stuff at this time.
