    Why the desperation to keep the benefits? Earn more than those benefits and you can have a better life?

    Is this the world we live in today? Take the most from all of us Tax Payers who are paying for your benefits and for you to do the minimum possible!

    Will you still be doing this in another 60 years when you hope to get a pension?

    Of course. Pension Credit. Same amount of money as all those people who actually paid in for 50 years or more.

    People in this forum will make sure she gets her "entitlement" too.

    You can’t claim both UC & HB. If you are getting both then you will be paying some back.
    You could of course work hard, get a well paid job and not have such problems in future.

    Think you may just be trolling though

    I thought under25s didn't get much/any help, unless under special circumstances.
