Employer help if you have a sickness, injury or disability
Help from your employers because of a sickness, injury or disability doesn't need to be declared as income. But if you get Accommodation Supplement, Temporary Additional Support or Special Benefit you do need to tell us about it.
What is this?
This includes any payment or service you get so you can keep working eg transport to and from your job.
How it affects your benefit and allowances
You have to tell us about this payment if you:
- get Accommodation Supplement, Temporary Additional Support or Special Benefit
- invest the money you get and earn interest, this will be counted as income.
