    income support

    Hey. I became self employed in Dec 2016 after being part-time on paye for the rest of that year so most of my earnings for 16/17 was from paye. I've been solely s/e from Dec 16-date and have filed all the tax returns. Will the portion of 16 when I was on paye affect my eligibility to get income support?

    Plus I have around 6k savings, will have to use this up before I can claim anything? Obviously once this is gone in a few months I'm going to be totally brass as my business income is zero since lockdown as I am a "non essential" business and am always in direct contact with customers so I can't even simply work from home and earn.

    Plus my daughter lives with me and is a key worker who works for the government funnily enough. So she is obligated to continue working. Would I be expected to live off her money until I get back ony feet?
