Total newbie here. I just need some advice please as I am a bit worried about finances etc. I have 2 children aged 13 and 11. Both have autism and I claim carers allowance & income support for my youngest. He is in receipt of DLA high rate care, low rate mobility and I get the disability premium on the child tax credits.
I am starting university in September, have applied for student finance – currently waiting for that to update. Does anyone know where I stand with benefits? I know I’ll have to close my carers allowance which will also close the income support as I have read if your at university, you can’t be a carer too. I am planning on closing my housing benefit and council tax claim as I really do not want to trigger anything to go over to universal credit.
Will my student finance change the amount of tax credits I receive? Will it trigger a change to universal credit? I have read on a few groups that students who are on universal credit dont get anything as they class the maintenance loans as income. If that were too happen, I don’t think i’d be able to go university as i’d be in the minus every month.
