    I am a student in my 30s who is currently living at home.

    I am not working, my mother is claiming benefits - our only household income, so I am wondering if there is anything that I am eligible to claim while at university other than my maintenance loan? Sadly, working isn't an option for me for the time being.
    Thanks.

    You should get a bursary from your uni. If you're disabled and are on PIP / DLA, then you can claim benefits. But full time students aren't generally entitled to benefits.
