    Does a mortgage get paid on unemployment benefit? 21st Jul 08 at 7:58 PM

    My ex was getting 50% of the mortgage paid whilst she had the children living with her.

    Will she still get this paid now that she is on her own?

    I am concerned that the mortgage will get into serious arrears and need advice.

    She has been claiming since autumn last year, although probably has to pay a lot of it back as she was claiming for the children whilst they were not with her (have been with me now for over 4 months)

    Many thanks.
