Does anyone have experience of working part time and receiving any benefits in the U.K. It seems to me that if you work part time it really goes against your entitlement to disability benefits. Looking at this example from a document by the age.org.uk website. it seems unlikely that I would be able to receive PIP whilst working part time as my functioning Is a bit higher than the example below "Rachel has chronic fatigue syndrome and has learnt to manage her condition by pacing herself and her activities, making sure she doesn’t overdo things. She has on average three good days to each bad one, when she rests for the day and does not get dressed or go out. She likes to cook, but finds standing to prepare food tiring, so she sits on a stool to do so. She can wash herself without assistance but she finds standing in the shower very tiring, so she uses a seat. She does relaxation exercises every day. On a good day she can walk to the post office half a mile away, as long as she takes her time, or can drive to the supermarket. She has no problems planning a journey and hopes to visit a friend in France next year. Rachel will not qualify for PIP." http://www.ageuk.org.uk/Documents/E...rsonal_independence_payment_fcs.pdf?dtrk=true The last part really seems to go against her however she clearly cannot work full time in certain jobs, so really should be entitled to some benefit. I get the impression that if they find you can work part time, they assume why not full time. Just like other peoples thoughts/experiences with this.
