    As an ESA recipient in the Support Group, what are the rules around Permitted Work?
    Originally posted by Kavalactone
    The Permitted Work rules
    Under the Permitted Work rules you can:

    work for less than 16 hours a week on average, with earnings up to 99.50 a week for 52 weeks.

    work for less than 16 hours a week, on average, with earnings up to 99.50 a week if you are in the Support Group of the main phase of Employment and Support Allowance.

    work and earn up to 20 a week, at any time, for as long as you are receiving Employment and Support Allowance.

    do Supported Permitted Work and earn up to 99.50 a week for as long as you are receiving Employment and Support Allowance, provided you continue to satisfy the Supported Permitted Work criteria.

    Supported Permitted Work means work that is supervised by someone who is employed by a public or local authority or a voluntary organisation, and whose job it is to arrange work for people with disabilities. This could be work done in the community or in a sheltered workshop. It also includes work as part of a hospital treatment programme.
