    Carers allowance 11th May 18 at 4:11 AM
    Hi
    My 16 yr old daughter gets DLA and is going over to PIP. I get carers allowance for her. She is going to get a part time job will that affect her PIP and my carers allowance? I currently get housing benefit and council tax benefit what impact will my daughter's part time job have on these?
    Thanks

    No, it won't affect them. The only thing she could have problems with is if the work she does contradicts the reasons she's claiming the DLA/PIP.

    As with all benefits, this change of circumstances needs to be reported to DWP and they will confirm affect based on what you tell them.

    Normally, from what I understand DWP welcomes someone with a disability taking up work, so a part time job should not make a difference.

    But DWP still need to be told about this.
    The comments I post are personal opinion. Always refer to official information sources before relying on internet forums. If you have a problem with any organisation, enter into their official complaints process at the earliest opportunity, as sometimes complaints have to be started within a certain time frame.

    That does depend on where she lives. Only England forces children to stay in education until 18. The rest of the UK is based around your 16th birthday.

    OP if your daughter claims DLA/PIP and works at least 16hrs per week she may be able to claim working tax credits also.

In reality, you can be working and doing no learning at all as there is no legislation in place to compel a young person to do this or to stop an employer from employing them.
