If I earn £100 a week do I keep my carers allowance but lose my income support?

If I lose my income support do I lose CTC, free dental etc?

What about council tax benefit? (HB not relevant).

Are there limits on the amount of hours I can work + study or both?

Just been offered a pin money job working from home that ties in with my OU course CV wise neatly but don't want to shaft myself iyswim. Thought I'd ask here before braving the depths of the job centre as I have to take DS with me, which makes actually being able to ask questions and listen to the answers hard, and also you lot are more like to know the answers anyhow!

Sorry same question if I earn £200 a week.

I'm sure you can only earn £100 max per week to get CA. Call contact a family and ask to speak to Marion In benefits advice she is brilliant.

No idea about income support - I only know about CA:

you can earn up to £100 per week (after tax an NI) - going up to the grand sum of £102 in May.

Do you pay into a pension and childcare? then certain deductions for pension and childcare are also allowed.
