    Permitted work 10th Sep 17 at 11:09 AM
    I know permitted work can be done on ESA but can this go against ESA and reassessment?

    It will not go against you, but it will be taken into account. For instance, if you claim to have a bad back but you work in a job that requires lifting and carrying, that will raise questions. If you claim to be agoraphobic and never leave the house, but then take a job in retail again that may raise a doubt.

    If you're honest in your ESA50, that you are making steps towards getting better but you are still limited in what you can do, then it will not cause an issue.

    It never went against my award when I was doing permitted work.
