Are you PHYSICALLY able to work more than 16 hours a week? Are you purposely avoiding exceeding the allowable hours so as to continue to receive benefits?

No doubt. I used to work 24-48 hour shifts as a paramedic. Now I only do 12 hours/day as a nurse because I not only got older I got smarter

We grow too soon old, and too late smart.

If you've got the stamina to ride a horse and keep it well.....you generally have the stamina to work a decent work week.....especially at that age.....

I think that she means that she can get benefits if she works up to 16 hours per week. In the US, if you are on disability, you can work up to 20 hours per week. I have a friend who is incapable of working full days due to her multiple sclerosis, but she can work a few hours a day. This allows her to make a somewhat better life for her family.

I know a young woman that lived with her mother off and on until she was 35 years old. That sucks for both the mother and the kid. I moved out when I was 17, got my education, and I support myself and my family. Making your own money gives you the power to make your own decisions.

I completely understood what she meant - and that is why my question was is she ABLE to work more hours than that but CHOOSING not to so as not to cause herself to lose the benefits she is collecting.

Do you honestly believe you are doing the right thing by continuing to own a horse and collecting state money at the same time? Unless you are collecting for disability, I would seriously take a good long look at your judgement.

I think what your family is doing is wrong. But I wouldn't have been put in this situation anyways. I wouldn't have tolerated anyone else riding my horse. I would have demanded a key to have access to things I own. Plus, I'm not sure how things work in the UK, but if you moved out at only 16 I am assuming that you already had family issues. With that said, I wouldn't have had the horse on the property in the first place. Again, this is only answered your original question, what would I do. Oh and if I had no other option but to live on tax payers money, I would have definitely sold my Olympic level jumping horse to pay bills and do what is right...

I hope you have learned a valuable lesson from this experience and start making better decisions with your life. I have a feeling that you will feel much better once you do.

That is what she means Celeste, but it is not like disability here in the US. She is claiming a state provided subsidy, my memory is shaky as it was over a decade ago, but I believe it's called Family Credit or Family Support. She can work up to 20 hours a week and still get full benefits. It's designed to help get low income people back on their feet.

Return the items you don't want to your mother.


As far as CSA, unless your ex has a high documented income, you won't see a penny because the child support he pays goes back to repay the benefits that you are receiving. It's done that way so your income is secure if he decides not to pay. The only way you would see any of that money, is if he is assigned a payment that is more than your benefits - not likely! And this is why it's immoral for you to have a horse, because the British tax payers are paying for it for you rather than you trying to stand on your own two feet.
