Yes you can. Speak to a local Inland Revenue advisor they really are there to help and advice you on what is best. I can’t tell you about benefits as I’m not qualified I can only give you advice to call.
A lot of Avon representatives are on benefits and Avon is fitting in perfectly with their lives, and some are much more better off. A couple have come off one benefit and are now claiming another others are no longer on benefits. I can only suggest you call the Inland Revenue or speak to your local Job Centre. Please do not let being on benefits put you off.
