I am in receipt of a disability payment; will I lose this if I start working?

It is possible to work and depending on the number of weekly hours you work and your personal circumstances, it is possible to retain all or part of your disability payment. We offer independent advice and information on how these benefits may be affected if you start working The minimum is eight hours per week but all jobseekers can look for either part-time or full-time – depending on their own preference and personal situation.


I am not in receipt of a disability payment, can you still help me find work?

Yes. If you have a disability and need assistance to get a job, we can help you.


What if I get sick?

Employers know that most employees (with or without a disability) at some point cannot attend work due to illness. It is important that if you do become ill and cannot go to work that you follow your employer’s protocol for this.


How will I get to and from work?

Unfortunately, we cannot provide transport for you, however we can help you look at the options available to you in this regard.


What can I expect to get paid?
