    Support Group/ESA, change of circumstances. 12th Oct 16 at 11:25 AM
    Hi all,

    I've been in the SRAG (Support group, not sure if I got the correct abbreviation) for around 6 years.

    In the 6 years, I've been, for a few hours a week trying to better myself by learning some skills online.

    As a result of that, next month, I've been offered the chance to work from home, a few hours a week - it's paid.

    Do I have to declare this? I'm really not sure how the whole system works as I've never really had a chance of circumstance worth notifying them about.

    I'm just unsure of what to do, any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Esa is mostly for people too unwell to work and some what's called ' permitted work' might be allowed but whether your work comes under that category is for dwp to decide.

    Contact ESA and they will send you a form called a PW1, for Permitted Work. You must complete that, return it AND have a decision from ESA BEFORE you start work.
