Working full time and claiming benefits

Hi,

I'm currently working full time, I'm finding it really tough but I'm only 23 so there's no chance i can drop to part time. I've been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and I'm currently having more tests done to determine what type of arthritis I have.

I'm wondering if there are any benefits you can claim when working full time?

Thanks

    Dear Little Miss Mai,

    The benefit that people apply to used to be DLA (Disability Living Allowance) which is now becoming PIP (Personal Independence Payment). If you'd like to know a bit more about this, a good first stop is to ring the Benefits Enquiry Line https://www.gov.uk/benefit-enquiry-line

    If you'd like to talk about how things are going with your arthritis, do get in touch with us at Helplines.

    I hope that is helpful
