Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Over how long did you work, weeks, months please?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

2 months as bank hours

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Have they asked you in for interview?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

If you mean job center yes they need to see my partner

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No they need him but they reduced the money we have now

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Did you or your partner sign the declaration?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

My partner did

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Ok. In that case your partner won't get into trouble as its only an offence is they knew you had been working and not said. If they did not know then there is no offence as they need knowledge that they had failed to declare a change in circumstances.
If they did not know then it is not their fault. However if they are on JSA I would have thought they may have wondered where you were going every day?
But if your partner didnt know then they will not get in to trouble.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Do you mean that if they ask him about my work that he can just say that I didn't tell him about it and just give evidence that I am not working now that is all we have to do

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Yes. But it may of course mean you are not entitled to full benefit.

Can you clarify please

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

But they said that they got the information from the tax people

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Yes but SHE can not be charged because she didnt know.
Any billing questions must go to customer services, but you are not on subscription by the look of it.
