Thread: Reduced earnings allowance and self employment

    Reduced earnings allowance and self employment

    Hello all, this is my very first time on here.

    I currently work self employed and receive REA, I reached age 65 in December and learned that I can still receive the REA at the full amount and work self employed as long as I do ten hours a week, on average.

    Is there anyone else on here doing the same?

    I was initially told I would be checked to ensure the ten hours work but don't know when that will be and what information I would be required to send?

    Can anyone please help?

    Many thanks

    Hi bluebunner,

    I'm afraid to say that I had forgotten Reduced Earnings Allowance.

    On googling I do remember it but thought it had been replaced.
    You had to be injured or developed your condition before 1990 to qualify for REA, so there may not be that many claimants around.

    Sorry I can't help more, but didn't want to leave you without any answer.

    Hopefuly someone else may have experience.
    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.

    Thanks nukecad, you are correct about the time it was replaced, I did qualify before that.
