My question is about about permitted work when claiming ESA.

Customer Question

My question is about about 'permitted work' when claiming ESA. I currently claim approx
£100 per week. I understand I am able to earn £20 per week or £100 per week if it is overseen by local office without it effecting my claim. I am a draughtsperson and i may be offered a one off piece of work for one week for say £500. How would this impact the Employment and Support Allowance I am receiving.
