Are you asking if you can still claim?

i'm asking how much am i allowed before i need to tell or not tell authorities

I would declare everything.
However, the official requirement is that you need to declare anything over £5k because that would have an impact and anything over £16k would mean that means tested benefits would come to an end until the money is spent upon supporting you I'm afraid.
However, I would declare everything. Then if they find out about it afterwards you are protected.
Can I clarify anything for you?
