    I am starting a degree in sept and I will receive £9000 odd in bursary and £2324 in student finance loan. I am trying to work out my housing benefit entitlement (I have sent of relevant docs to the council department but no reply as of yet) and I know the online benefit calculators online do not take in account students however I filled them out saying my loans etc was my income and adding the working tax credit they said i was entitled to (as they thought I was working) the different in housing benefit would be £61. Does this seem like a normal amount for a student with dependants to pay?
    Thankyou

    Impossible to answer. It depends on the maximum amount of rent you're entitled to each week. (LHA)

    My rent is over £80 less a week than the max LHA for my area
