Claiming Disabled Worker Element
A client has been in receipt of PIP enhanced DL for some time and is working 16 hrs with a condition that puts her at a disadvantage in getting a job - is eligible for the the Disabled Worker element and Severe Disability element in her WTC. She is worried reporting this will trigger a change to UC- I have tried to reassure her but can find no definitive advice of this to reassure that a UC claim will NOT be triggered. Also could she request backdating to the date of her PIP award for this element if all conditions met?
Thanks for any advice.
Is she already in receipt of WTC? If so, why?
Yes she is working 16 hrs with children so gets WTC.
She is allowed to stay on WTC as its only a change of circumstances she can do by phone.
