adult dependants grant HELP?? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi all,

    In 2012 I was a full time student & I got married.

    My wife became fully dependent on me, because I was a full time university student (2nd year) and because she had 0 income. She also wasn't a student....which makes us eligible for the adult dependants grant, i would have dropped out of uni if it weren't for the adult dependants grant.

    I applied for adult dependents grant, and I got it.

    Now, student finance is chasing me again, saying i need to show proof that we were entitled.

    So I did...

    I showed letters from the Jobcentre mentioning ALL the dates when me and wife were on state benefits, leaving blank the periods that we were NOT, but Student finance didn't accept it...they said: Jobcentre shouldn't tell us when you WERE on benefits, they should tell us specifically that you WERENT on these dates.....

    i got back to the jobcentre, and they said: we cannot word it that way. t's basically the same thing. they can fill in the gaps themselves........but they don't!

    I'm stuck between this bureaucratic crap....any advice? all help appreciated.
Do you think parents should charge rent?
