    Hi,
    I am a mature student, married with 4 kids. I am disabled and claim DLA and ESA. How will taking out a loan affect my claims? I cannot find any information about this. Thanks.

    Hi

    You would be best to check this with the Department of Work and Pensions. They’ll be able to tell you how a Postgraduate Loan will affect any benefits you get.

    You may also be able to apply for Disabled Student’s Allowances (DSAs) to help with any additional costs you have as a direct result of your disability. You can find out more about these on the DSAs page in The Student Finance Zone.
