    Benefit entitlement for single parent and full time student 16th Jul 09 at 10:24 PM

    I am being made redundant at the end of Aug. My redundancy pay is around £1k.

    I am going to be going to college full time in sept. I am a single parent who lives with my mum and son.

    My monthly pay will go from £1800 to £400!!!

    Any ideas of benefits I can claim? - I will be looking for part time work to fit around college.

    From what I can see, all the benefits for unemployed single parents are not given to those who are also students!

    Any help?!
