Wages stay the same
If you get paid the same amount each pay (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 to 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.
You only need to tell us once, until your wages change, as we assume they will be the same every week.
If you start a new job
You need to tell us:
- who you work for (this could be more than one employer or yourself)
- when you started work
- the amount before tax (gross) you earn each week, or the hourly rate
- the number of hours you work in a week.
