    Can you work part-time while on DLA? 15th Jan 12 at 4:48 PM
    I've not been working since 2009 and been on DLA since 2010 (mental health).

    I would like to return to work at some point but am nowhere near ready to go full time. My Dla is up for renewal and if I am successful I would like to try and look for part time work this year to return to the workplace and get over my sense of isolation.

    Currently I'm on ESA and DLA, would I lose either if I worked part time? I'm sure I have heard you can do part time work over and above your benefits.
