Sorry if this isn’t the place for it- trying to find the best section.
So: I’ve been Patreon Creator for years now, and it’s lovely to share and grow a community. Thing is, I’m disabled with some time-consuming chronic illnesses, thus unable to work any of this full time (barely part-time) and unable to work a more stable job alongside it. I’ve not been earning enough to live on, and I finally admitted that I needed to apply for Benefits for a chance to remotely survive (currently PIP, & Housing).
But I’m a little worried Patreon may effect the application process? Has it ever effected any of your benefit applications negatively? Or even if it’s come up at all?
Note: I’m self-employed, but only earning for certain around £60 - £120 a month through Patreon; it’s not much, but it meets the £1000 threshold for a ‘hobby business’ so it’s a weird one. Not really enough to live on, obviously fickle, and jobs are very slim due to the disability. Luckily PIP at least isn’t based on income, but I wonder if it would be seen negatively in the eyes of an interviewer.
