I am really confused and worried at the moment because I have no idea what ATOS will decide if I am fit to work or not.I am also on PIPS as I have had Fibromyalgia for ten years and had shoukder surgery last September that has nit quite healed yet.As I have been in the support group for over a year. I am waiting to be reassessed. If they decide I am fit to work which I want to be, as Iwant my.life back again. I need a job waiting. Do I have to let the DWP know if I am offered a job before the reassessment or can I sign myself off. Also am I right in thinking I have four weeks to try the job out?

    Be honest at your assessment and tell them you're nearly ready to go back to work, hopefully that way they will move you from SG to WRAG. Even if they do leave you in the support group and you find a job, just let them know you want to end your claim.

    I don't think they give you four weeks to try the job out per-se, but they should carry on paying your benefit for four weeks (to tide you over before you get paid), this should also be the same with HB

    Hi

    Have a look at "permitted work" if you google it comes up with some links to dwp gov website etc.

    It is a bit confusing but i think you can get advice from disability personal officer at jobcentre regarding working few hrs a week if you are in support group and don't earn more than they allow i think its £115.
