    Anyone can claim, but that doesn't mean it's been awarded yet. Could it be that your DD filed a claim because she wants to start being independent and manage her own money? Even if that leaves the family worse off overall, it's a good step towards learning independent skills, so maybe not to be discouraged. Of course, that would mean her contributing towards the bills.

    Have you stopped claiming CB too?
