    careers

    Hi all sorry i have not posted for a while not been too good but i am back now,and my question is when i was in hospital i wondered if a career stays with me a few night during 7 days will that interfere with my e.s.a?.My condition has took a turn for the worse as i feel and am bed ridden at present so i need somebody to help me through the night as my other career my son is studying for exams and i can not put the extra pressure on him while he is studying for G.C.S.E im sure some of you can understand that,so therefore my other career has offered to come a few nights until i can cope again but i am concerned that my benefit may be affected any help please????

    Regards Samantha.

    I am sorry to hear this. I do not see why it should affect it, other than if the person is living there & paying rent or towards bills, then of course this is classed as income. If they are staying overnight as a carer then you have that right & can show the need. I am not sure if you need to inform them of this though.

    Hi well i rang the benefits enquiry line and i have got to ring my local office to tell them that my career stays over so now i presume i will have to prove im not in a relationship with the person so i shall give them a ring and hopefully get this sorted out i would absolutely hate myself if i have been doing wrong by allowing my career to stay over11.Mind you they did keep going on about being in the support group why this would make a difference i don not know x

    I can see how ahrd it is for you, & you do need the help. It is always best to report things, just to be sure you are covered. Yes, when someone is in your home for more than a visit it can lead to questions, which is a fair point really. You have done nothing wrong, you are entitled to care, it is just assumed if someone is staying they are living there, & therefor it has other assumptions. All you can do is be honest about it, & do not allow anyone to make you feel in the wrong.
