    Back to work benefits....

    Back to work benefits.... 18th Apr 12 at 10:08 PM
    I have found *really* conflicting information online, vs what my LP advisor said.........

    She told me:
    • 4 weeks LHA run on
    • 4 weeks council tax run on
    • 40 p/w back to work credit

    Online i have found that the 2 first points seem to be true, but not the 3rd: (taken from DWP website)

    "Return to Work Credit
    Return to Work Credit is a tax-free payment of 40 per week for people that have, or have had, a health condition or disability.

    You might not qualify if you claim either of the following benefits in the five weeks before starting work:
    Jobseeker's Allowance
    Income Support as a lone parent

    But that a job grant of 250 *is* available?

    Can anyone advise? Many thanks.

    ETA Coming off IS as a lone parent!
