hi some advice please i get carers allowance but i took on a seasonal job it ended on 31st december and first started 14th december i didnt get paid weekly but got one off payment last week of just over £1000 what do i do now, im not in any work now i still looked after my carer for 35 hrs week
My immediate reaction is to contact the DWP and advise them accordingly.
Without an explanation , the one off payment might ring alarm bells with them.
There’s no hiding place from them.
Seasonal / irregular earnings ?
Full sp on the Turn2Us site :
Calculating work hours: Seasonal Workers - Turn2us
Even more complex if Universal Credit has been rolled out on your manor ?
Anyone juggling work with caring is limited to £ 120 PER WEEK whilst claiming Carers Allowance at the same time.
1p more and the whole of Carers Allowance is lost !
Not something new , tens of threads mention this stretching back many years.
As I type , nobody reading this posting wants to be in the DWP’s sights … at anytime :
I assume that you took steps to stay within that limit ???
The usual pension route and / or with allowable expenses ?
