Self-employed or business income
If you're self employed or have a business and what you earn changes each week (whether you're paid weekly, fortnightly or monthly), you need to let us know. The amount you earn will affect your benefit. If you don’t tell us we may not pay you enough. Or we may pay you too much and you’ll have to pay the debt back.
Tell us before you get paid
You need let us know the week you earn the money, not when you’ve been paid. We need to know by Friday 6 pm. If you’re working the weekend, include this time too.
If you need more information or want to discuss this in more detail contact us
