I desperately need some advice and how someone here has the answer. Currently, I claim ESA and also receive housing and council tax benefits. Because of the fibro and numerous other conditions, I'm unable to go out to work. However, there is a possibility that I may be offered some admin work (to do from home) of up to a max of 10 hours per week. As I have been living a hand to mouth existence for some years, this would allow me to live without financial fear for the first time, but I am unsure as to whether or not I will be allowed to do this. Will the benefits cease if I do? I really don't want to phone the DWP as I don't trust them to give me an honest reply and am also terrified they will use my call as an excuse to stop any/all of my benefits. Any sound advice would be so much appreciated.
