    Im the single mother of a 4 year old who will be starting Reception in September when Im set to start uni. I currently work average 30 hours but I am resigning in a month because I want to focus on uni and my son for a few months until I get a good routine and I am unsure whether or not Id be able to afford a sitter and everything else.

    Ive applied for the maximum maintenance loan but have only been granted the minimum. In order to get the maximum i need to show evidence that I will be receiving benefits when I start uni. How would I do this?

    Should i resign early and get on benefits now or is there another way to show this?

    Many thanks

    You need to be warned that if you resign, you may not even get benefits.

    Hi hermindworks

    Please speak with the DWP to check your eligibility for benefits.
    We may request a letter from the DWP to show what benefits you are eligible for. If you need to discuss the funding please call: 0300 100 0607

    Thanks
