Full Time Students and Benefits



5 months ago

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.
