    I do understand what you're both saying but they won't listen :(
    And they will get into trouble regardless of whether they get a job or not. Because they did not declare mine.
    And they 'can't' work. My mum is suffering from 'depression' and is a carer for my sister with her supposed ADHD and my dad is not even supposed to be living in our house.

    Oh right... wow.. so your parents, and I mean no offence ot this are actually commuting benefit fraud, by 1 - not declaring you, and 2 - not declaring your father lives there....

    Yes.

    So, to be honest, they will be in trouble anyway if they are found out. It's not just to do with you... so they don't really have a right to tell you to leave because of your job!

    i think theyre gonna be in trouble at some point whether you move out or not.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I know, but me quitting my job/moving out is avoiding it.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    ... Not really because they will be in trouble sooner or later (as SCC has just said) They can't hide forever.

    no its not.
    You moving out, doesnt mean that you havent been living there for some time without declaring it.
    If they find that out, then they will be in trouble whether youre still living there or not

    The long and the short of it is, it's their house, and their rules. you live by them or you leave. The morality of those decisions, and whether they're breaking benefit rules are neither here not there.

    You can't afford your own place, so you can't afford to keep your job.

    tbh if it were me (and this doesn't help I know) but I'd shop my parents in for benefit fraud.. If they kicked me out, I'd want to fuck with them even more.. especially if they're kicking you out to hide their own illegal activities.

    nail and head.


    Its all very well people saying keep your job because its drummed into us that its the right thing to do, therefore everything else will just work itself out, but it doesnt actually work like that in real life.

    Your pay from your current job, wont even begin to cover the cost of living on your own. It wont even cover half of it if you move in with your boyfriend, and you wont even entertain the idea of the cheaper options like flatsharing or bedsits. Youre just gonna end up in a whole lot of trouble financially.
    Youd be best off staying at home, giving up your job until you finish college, and then get another job later on and moving out when you can work full time, and hoping in the meantime that your parents dont get caught for what youve already worked

    But they can or at least they will try to. It's not going to let me just stay here and carry on with my job.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    What do I do for money in the mean time then?
    And I love my job :(

    i dont get your post. They can or will try to what?

    They will try to not get into trouble over all this.

    Thats not the point. it seems that your job, at the moment, is a luxury.

    Unless you want to give up college and go full time if you can, but then that is less positive for your future prospects.
    You cant financially afford to go to college, work part time, and run a home at the same time. It cant be done.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I've worked it out. It can.

    have you taken into account bills? council tax? tv tax? furnishing your flat, your weekly shop?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    you're wrong, but don't let us stop you.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    youre in for a big wake up call

    Full-time students are exempt from council tax. Anyone who lives with them will receive the 25% (single person) discount.

    I wish I could shop them myself.

    Ditto to the wake up call. Or maybe it's me that needs one, renting and supporting a flat on 20 hours of unskilled work a week, why the hell am I working so hard then?!

    Well, if you're doing this AND spending 340 pounds on shoes... yes you probably do need a wake up call.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    fucking hell. Would people really shop their own parents?? for that????

    I would.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    For me, the path would be quitting the part time job (As far as the resume/CV is concerned it is to concentrate on studies in the run up to exams) getting qualified; then either going to uni and working as you see fit, or getting a job and moving out.

    id never shop my mother for anything. I wouldnt even shop a friend for something as trivial as scamming the government. Its not like its commiting murder is it. Your mother gave you life!

    Family and friends before governments! Its not as if the general public are going to get any sort of rebate the more people are shopped
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I think the family needs some proper benefits advise as the mother can actually work in small amounts similar to those that she is not declaring, but declaring them with no penalty. Similar rules would aply to Lyric too.

    It wouldn't save the country any money to do so though, so who wins?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I guess I'd turn a blind eye, as long as it wasn't excessive - the scale is far lest than "legitimate" tax avoidance.

    But I'd let them know how upset I was, and by turning a blind eye, I guess I mean turning my back.
