Hi all,

 

I have learning difficulties and I need some help understanding what permitted work Is,

 

the reason I would like to know is because I receive esa and pip

what I have been receiving for the past 3 years

 

I worked in kitchens from 16 years old till I was 28 then i become really depressed and anxious due to swallowing issues

 

I had a good tube for 2 years and currently survive on ensure

I find it very difficult to swallow soft food,

because of this I am quite weak and collapse frequently but my stability has got better in the last year,

 

my problem is I don't get enough money on dwp

i am in debt with electricity and water rates that i cannot afford to pay back and

 

I would like to do some light work to help earn more but I'm worried that I will take on work and my benefits will stop because I am in no position to be able to manage full time work at this current time

 

could someone please explain to me the best options for me,

 

Thank you

 

Karl

do you get council tax relief, if so you should get water also, typically they are joined.

 

why don't you goto entitled.to website and do their benefits check.

you never know!!

so how long have you been not paying for your electric?

£1200 is one hell of a bill.

have you been putting money away to pay for this ??

even though you couldn't pay them?

 

what do you mean they changed from a key meter?

Benefit for water rates will depend on where you live - Scotland is probably the only area left where this happens. You can ask for money to be taken from your Benefits to pay certain bills https://www.gov.uk/bills-benefits

 

With water you may be better off with a water meter and the water companies have different schemes to help if you are in debt to them by being able to write off up to 100% of the debt owing. Do you know which company you are with?

I have lived in my home for 1 and half years now

I was on medication that caused me to get amnesia so my heads abit all over the place but I don't think I paid any bill

 

I have a social worker who was suppose to deal with all of this but I don't see him no more

I get housing benefits if that's what you mean by tax relief and with the meter it was supposed to come from my bank account but it has not I will have a look at your website

 

I am with Thames water as I got a letter from them they are going to send me a letter out and they said I can get 50 percent off on the bill and rates because I asked them about water rate rebate
