    Working has nothing to do with claiming any disability benefit such as PIP or DLA so you don't need to report the changes to them. When it's time for your review if the work you do contradicts the reasons why you're claiming a disability benefit then it can go against you.
    Do you claim any other benefits?
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hi @oliverm :) Welcome to the community! It's great to have you on board. 

    Congratulations on your job offer! Have you looked into getting any reasonable adjustments (Scope)?

    It seems as though you had some trouble posting at first. This is something other people have experienced, so we're looking into it currently. 

    I've got a few questions for you, if that's okay? 
    • What type of device are you using? e.g. phone, laptop, desktop, tablet
    • What browser are you using? e.g. Chrome, Safari, Edge
    • Do you use any device plug-ins?
    • Do you use any assistive tech with your device?
    • Could you see that multiple posts were being made, or did it look like you were just writing and posting one post? 
    You can reply by emailing community@scope.org.uk if you'd prefer. 

    I've closed your duplicate posts, but haven't deleted them for now. This isn't because you've done anything wrong. It's just so that we can use them to look into this issue. I hope that makes sense!
