Hi I work and also claim universal credit. I have a 20 year old son who has a disability and also claims universal credit. His claim is separate to mine. When your child turns 18 and leaves education they will no longer be a dependent child. You stop claiming for them on your tax credits and they would put a claim in of their own for universal credit. Your council tax may increase as you have another adult in the home.
