Hi please help im getting stressed out with it all, at the minute im on the old system of tax credits/housing and council tax support and work 18.75 hours a week, i know that my payments will go down soon but im stuck as my eldest daughter will turn 19 in july and has left college now.
she will have to look for a job but will she affect my housing or council tax top ups and be looked at as if she is another adult and be expected on my benefits as an income when she has a job or can she work and pay towards her upkeep the amount i will be missing example child benefit etc
I still have a 10 and 13 year old also but its all confusing
