Hi,

I have been on incapacity for a while, for depression and back problems.

 

I have been doing some voluntary work, and tentatively looking for work to get back "out there".

 

Well, I have now been offered a job!

 

I think I am well enough to do it, its not physically demanding so will not affect my back

and I think my depression might be less if i had a reason to get up everyday!

 

But how do I get off incapacity benefit?

 

Do I just ring them and say I have a job?

And what happens about getting a P45?

 

I will not be financially better off, but I would rather be working and boost my confidence and self esteem. Help!!

You just phone them up and tell them you wish to come off benefits. They will send you a P45 when they close your claim down.

 

And congratulations on the job!

Yes. Working Tax Credit may apply if Misswoo is over 25 and works more than 30 hours per week. The 30 hour requirement is reduced to 16 hours for those entitled to some types of DLA/PIP.

 

Housing Benefit (for those who pay rent) and Council Tax Reduction may also be available to those on a low income, regardless of whether or not they are working.

I'd forgotten about that, but you're right. The information sheet can be found here.

 

Basically you can get WTC if you have a disability listed in section 2 of that sheet and you have recently come off IB (or another qualifying benefit listed in section 3.)
