    Just after some advice please. My daughter just turned 19 and she lives with me. She is due to finish college and with her not having a job at the moment there is only myself bringing money in i am a single parent so its just me and my daughter. I am on universal credit and i work part time (16 hours) a week. How will this affect universal credit? Im worried my money will get reduced with daughter turning 19 but what will my cicumstances be as she isnt bringing any money in?

    Your daughter will need to make a claim. If you’re not already in the working support group you’ll be moved to it where you’ll be expected to attend coach meetings and training/cc development etc and expected to look for work that earns at least 35 x minimum wage rate.

    The amount you’ll lose will hopefully be offset by what your daughter can claim. But she’ll need to understand her amounts need to be paid towards the home.
