On ESA + PIP, allowed work?
I am in a position to take a bit of low-paying work on, as a self-employed person, but the idea is that I would be paid a lump-sum for about 3 months of very occasional part-time work.
According to CAB, ESA permitted work is:
"Any job can be permitted work as long as each week you're working under 16 hours, and earning less than £131.50."
If I average it out, I would definitely be under this amount. But, I'm not being paid a monthly wage or on fixed hours. My concern is that I'd get the lump sum in my account, and suddenly it looks like I have been paid that much for one month's work which would be a super well paying job or something, when I don't!
Has anyone else had any experience with this sort of thing? Or any ideas of where I can go with this?
