    Hi,

    I'm a little confused here because the title of your thread says " the fear of having your disability benefit reduced if you work" then you mention the benefit cap.

    If a person is claiming a disability benefit like DLA or PIP then they are exempt from the benefit cap. Also, if a disabiled person doesn't claim a disability benefit but earns more than £604 per month they are also exempt from the cap.
