How many hours a week can I work while receiving DLA?

I receive the low rate of care and the low rate of mobility (bipolar disorder). At the moment I work 7.5 hours a week on the advice of my CPN. But being a mostly-SAHM is doing my head in and I'd like to increase work by one more day - ie. I'd be working 15 hours a week. Is that OK? Job is in a shop, no responsiblity and quite good fun.

as many as you want. Its not a means tested benefit. You recieve DLA because you have a disability.

If you were receiving IB or IS, then you'd have to be careful but with DLA, no problem.

Well done and keep having fun!
