Income for extra help payments
If you get any income, you need to tell us straight away as it could affect how much you get for other payments (eg, Accommodation Supplement, Disability Allowance, Temporary Additional Support).
If you don’t tell us about your income, we may pay you too much and you’ll have a debt to pay back.
How to tell us
You need to let us know by the Sunday of the week you earn the money, not the week you've been paid.
We'll work out what your payment will be in the following week. It affects the following week's payment because we pay for the week that's just been.
You need to let us know the:
- dates of the week you worked
- amount of income you earned (before tax)
- number of hours you worked
- name of your employer.
You need to tell us each week that your income changes.
