my cousin was well made up because he’s got himself a cleaning job 12 hours a week. he’s on enhanced for daily living and was worried about working despite you being allowed, just wanted to say thanks for everyone’s advice. the points he’s got doesn’t stop him travelling to back safely on his own ect ect. so didn’t gain points he SHOULDNT of got. PIP no now anyway, I told him you don’t have to by law even declare your working full stop. even PIP said on the phone you don’t even no to tell us as that’s not deemed as a change you need to inform us about. Only address / bank details ect ect. anyway he’s made up with his job and he’s smiling again.

    thats great @samfits99, of course many people do work and claim/receive PIP, what you have to watch out for is as and example you get PIP for not being able to climb stairs and your job involves climbing ladders all day (yes I know thats an extreme example but you get the drift? )
    Be extra nice to new members.

    Hi @samfits99 - I'm pleased your cousin is doing well. He must be Sandra_63 's son (I thought there must be a connection between you all). Sandra must have told you about the advice members gave her, as this is the first time you've mentioned this cousin. :)

    @woodbine oh I completely agree. The points he gets doesn’t affect him going back and forth to worth safely ect ect. but he’s I totally agree! I thought personally you did have to notify them if you work but Gov PIP says you don’t have to notify us. Unless your getting points you shouldn’t be getting as you can carry out that task ect

    @chiarieds thank you. there is no connection at all. thank you though he’s made up ! just says he doesn’t have any friends and it upsets him

    I was just puzzled because you haven't asked about your cousin before, but I do remember being one of the members trying to advise Sandra_63 about her son working whilst getting PIP. That was also a bit confusing. :)

    I'm very suprised there's no connection between you all because you ask the same questions as @Sandra_63 and @ChloeHibbert

    @chiarieds I can assure you and everyone else I am not connected to anyone on here. I’m on here for advice as I think it’s great on here. my friend said PIP can look at your bank account ..... I called PIP up and asked and they said it’s a load of rubbish we can’t. only if someone is suspected of fraud then they would investigate but apart from that no “!

    Well, as often advice is given on here, & not everyone says thank you, it's good of you to thank us all for advice you haven't asked for, & we haven't given, as regards your cousin. :)

    A good example of where a "thanks" button would be a good idea
