    If it's Income related then yes it will affect it and would depend how much their earnings are. If it's Contribution based then it won't affect it. PIP is non means tested so won't affect it.

      Its income related but the thing is its as a self employed worker and hours arent guaranteed some weeks he will work some he wont it depends if the works there.

      If the hours arent there can income support be applied for.

      His Income would most probably be too much for her to claim Income related benefits of any kind. If he's working then he could possibly claim tax credits.

      Income Support can only be claimed if someone is claiming Carers Allowance (CA) if they claim CA then they wouldn't be able to earn more than £110 per week.

      I'm on contribution based ESA and in support group. My partner works. It doesn't effect your benefit at all. Hope this helped.

      I'm afraid so but like i said they maybe able to claim tax credits but being self employed is complicated. They should give tax credits a ring once they stop claiming ESA.
