Hi

 

- I have applied for ESA Benefit and have sent off my first Sick Note

 

- before applying for ESA I was working for 8 to 10 hours per week part time and was also receiving JSA at a* reduced rate so that the earnings from my part time work and received JSA totalled up to £73-00 PER WEEK

 

- I closed my JSA Claim on 1st February 18 and requested my ESA Claim to start from 2nd February 18

 

- The Gentleman who was taking my application for ESA over the phone asked what part time work I was doing and if I wanted to continue doing this work when receiving ESA

 

- I said I didn't think it was allowed to do any work whilst receiving a Benefit

- He said that there was a rule in place where you can do some part time work whilst on ESA which is called PERMITTED WORK

- is this correct ?

 

- I phoned yesterday and they told me I should receive my first ESA payment on 15th February 18

- Can I go back to my part time work straight away now or is there a certain amount of time I have to wait

 

- also how do I go about informing them that I will be doing part time work ?

-I have physical ailments which stop me from being able to work full time

 

also suffer from depression

- The part time work I was doing was escorting Children with learning and physical disabilities to school in a vehicle with someone else driving

- there is no physical work involved for me with this job as I just have to sit in the vehicle with the Children

 

the main reason I did and would like to continue doing this job is that it gets me out of my house for a few hours a week which helps greatly with my depression

 

- Sorry if this is a bit long winded but I dont want to do anything to jeopardise my ESA Benefit or to get into trouble with The DWP

 

- Many thanks for any advice that anyone can give me.

yes permitted work allowed, as it is helpful to those wanting to get back into work properly.

 

The key word is permitted. Don't have a sick note for a bad back and be working in a warehouse, unless it is admin work only. You will asked to confirm exact type of work.

 

Suggest you search and read about ESA. Plenty of info online


We could do with some help from you.

Hi again - another Permitted Work Enquiry .....Do you have to submit your payslips to anyone whilst doing Permitted Work ? if so can you send them by post or do you have to take them to the Job Centre to show them? Just asking as it costs me £8-50 a time to go to the Job Centre on a bus as I dont drive so posting them would be cheaper - Many thanks for any advice any one cane give me.
