    Hi there,

    My husband left me and my 2 young children almost 4 months ago. I have a low paid job as I only work part time. My husband still pays towards the mortgage and bills, can I claim anything like universal credit even though he still pays the mortgage?

    Can you google the govt benefits calculator?  That should give you an idea what you may be entitled to.

    Also check the child maintenance agency calculator.

    Hi Amelia,

    Child maintenance payments are not taken into account with UC.

    For the very best advice though I would contact the gingerbread team as they are fully trained and can give you the most up to date advice. Scroll down this page and you’ll find the link for the helpline.
