    My daughter turns 5 next week and I have been informed all benefits will stop then. I am unsure what to claim as I have another child who will be 6 in july and we live on our own just the 3 of us. We have no family nearby and although I would love a job which will fit round the children I am not sure what to do in the mean time.

    You could also get in touch with the single parent helpline who may be able to offer further guidance or signpost you to an agency that can help more with you query:
