Hi I wonder if someone would be able to help me.
My husband is disabled and I'm his registered Carer. We have 2 daughters, 18 and 13.
The 18 year old is currently studying for her A levels and is hoping to go to Uni later this year but in the mean time she would like to get a little part-time job.

My question is - How many hours / How much can she earn before it has a big impact on our benefits.
We get Income Support, full Housing and Council tax benefit and I get Carers.

She wants to work and we want to help and encourage her.

Thankyou

Can only comment on the Carers Allowance, and the earnings limit from 12/4/10 has increased to £100pw..this figure is not the same as the other benefits though...so please call them to find out their rules.
