Hi all,

I am currently back into full time work as of 27th January, working 32 hours a week as a supervisor. 

I am currently recieving PIP for living, standard rate.

I am wondering if there is anything else i can claim? IE Working tax credit or something... i only earn £200 per week without being taxed and NI on top of that... i am 27 years old.

Pleae let me know.

Thank you.

    Hi Natalie,

    I'm sorry that I'm not able to advise you on what else you can claim.  I'm retired and apart from PIP I only receive my retirement pension.  Having said that, I'm sure that someone will be able to answer your query shortly.

    Hi, are you in a private let or council?

    ?If you are only earning £200 a week b4 tax & NI then your employers are breaking the law by paying you below the minimum wage ( for a supervisor???)

    ?If you are a council tenant, then you will be getting a rebate for rent & council tax.

    ?By what you are saying is that you will get £800 per month + £622 ( pip) Is that correct?

      Sorry i didnt see your comment. I do not private let or council. I live at home with family. I will have to discuss with my employers regarding my pay as i thought straight away it was very low... to be paid £200 without tax and NI taken away. 

      For PIP i get £55.10 per week.

      Id just ring and tell them you claim pip and work over 16 hours a week they will probably send you a form out but they will backdate it and it normally only takes a few weeks....i already claimed working tax credits but only got £9:50 a week...this rose to £71 a week its well worth ringing xx

      I just rang the HMRC TAX CREDITS HELPLINE and told then I had come off ESA and would be working 16 hours a week as self employed. They sorted it out there and then. Ir was quite scary coming off ESA but I am still on Pips. My question is, should I let Pips know I have started work or do they know already as it is all the DWP??

      I think they're all linked because when I was awarded pip they seemed to inform the tax credits and my local council because they both contacted me and I was backdated what they awarded me but id never have known xx

    PIp is a stand alone benefit and you can claim it whilst you are working,  not working or on benefits.  It is not usually taxable but there are exceptions.  x
