Am I better off in work?

Starting work does not necessarily stop you from claiming benefits, see the Universal Credit calculator (external link) to find out how much you could be entitled to if you start work.

You also can find more help at your local library. For jobseekers, libraries offer help and guides to job hunting and starting work, visit Lancashire County Council (external link) to find out more. 

We also provide support and assistance to any of our tenants who want to get back into work. Visit getting back to work for more information.
