Hi, I am currently in my last year of University, due to graduate in July. However, I have had really bad disrepair issues at my home for a number of years. This has severely affected my health and my sons health. I usually work one day a week but due to depression and stress are no longer able to do this . My doctor may write me off work, as a single mother I am extremely worried because this is a vital source of income. Do you know if I would be entitled to claim any benefits as a result of this depression?

You can't claim ESA as a full time student unless you are in receipt of PIP (personal independence payment). I am unsure if you would be entitled to any benefits to do with your child but do you claim the full amount of student finance?
Edit: This website may help you with what you are entitled to. If you are unsure perhaps arrange a meeting with the finance team at your uni.Last edited by Jenx301; 08-03-2016 at 17:20.
