Full Time Students and Benefits
This video explores the complex area of students and welfare benefits. Benefits in general are discussed but the main focus is on lone parents and Universal Credit. Sadly I witnessed too many cases of the DWP calculating benefit entitlement incorrectly resulting in severe hardship and lengthy appeals! This video is a specialised area and gives guidance on what elements of your student finance should and should not be counted as income. I give an example calculation to illustrate.
