Will UC accept be back if I leave work again after transitioning off benefits ??
hi I have been out of work for 3 years suffering from a mental disability but feel as though I could pick up work again.
I receive UC on the LCW tariff.
I have put out a light feeler and had a job offer from Amazon.
I want to push myself to get over my agoraphobia, however if I start that job my benefits will decline and my claim will end.
My worry is that after 3-6 months I will deteriorate like before and be unable to work again but that I also won’t be allowed back on benefits.
What is the DWP’s stance if I found myself in that possession needing to go back to supported living ??
Will they allow my benefits claim to proceed if I had to leave the job for my mental health?
