Hi hun. I work part time now as i can no longer manage full time hours, but it seems you can't work and claim pip. Nor do i qualify for working tax creds as i work less than 30 hours a week and have no children. No pip, so no mobility either. Sorry to be glum! Xxx

There are days when i think i could do a little light job, not my usual nursing job, but i wouldn't have enough money coming in to pay the bills going out if i worked part time and having no significant other if i don't qualify for PIP then i will end up homeless. At the moment i receive high rate mobility and low rate care from DLA and ESA support group payments.

not pip but DLA, I appealed a decision last February, and the judge told me that because I drove myself and I can knit, I obviously don't qualify for care!!!! What would she have said if I worked I dread to think

I thinking getting any benefit that is health related is getting tougher and if my friend who has been in a wheelchair and had high rate DLA since then till last year when they told him because he had upper body strength and could move himself from his car to his electric chair he didn't qualify. After appeal he won, but he shouldn't have had to appeal its a system gone mad.

God! You are scaring me! We are waiting for the answer on PIP for my husband now. He is working at this moment only to support mortgage for the last few months until we complete the sale of our house, then he must stop working as he terribly struggling and we really need a house with a stair lift for him and me some days. Theoretically DLA/PIP has got nothing to do with your income as these money for you to move around and look after yourself only. They do not stop any tax from this money. I would really argue the fact that you cannot work on PIP. That shouldn't be a question!
