Can I work on PIP&LCWRA

abik0608 Member Posts: 1 Listener
I am currently receiving LCWRA&PIP I’m just wondering if I would be able to get some sort of delivery job for a few hours a week. I don’t have any housing costs as I live with parents. I’ve searched everywhere but I can’t seem to find any helpful information. How many hours can I work? What will I loose? I’m confused and struggling to find the answer can anyone help please!

    PIP is not a Work Related Benefit and working will have no impact.

    On UC with LCWRA there are no limits on the work you can do but if the work contradicts the reasons you have been found to have LCWRA may prompt a reassessment.

    You would need to report your employment through your UC journal.

    Because you claim no housing costs the first £515/month of any earnings will be ignored, there will be a deduction of 63% of anything over this.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
