    As far as what I have read it doesn’t go on how much savings you have or what you earn but @poppy123456 will be able to help more on that subject I only just have my telephone assessment today and I was asked if I worked , when I did work , when was the last time I worked , she asked me quite abit bout if I worked my partner found that she asked the same questions but put them differently she also asked bout my education as well . As far as I know you don’t have to inform them of that but they did ask me loads to do with work .

    Hi,

    Yes, lots of people claim PIP and work, providing the work you do doesn't contradict the reasons why you're claiming.

    @cupcake88 thanks. I didn't see your comment until after i posted. PIP isn't means tested so earnings/savings/capital don't affect the amount you can claim.
