Benefits for students depend on your personal circumstances such as your income and any savings you may have. Your benefits may stop if the income you get through student finance is too high.
The Job Centre Plus (JCP) will take into account any loans and grants, both undergraduate and postgraduate, when calculating your entitlement to benefits. Most full-time students can't claim income related benefits but you may be able to claim if you:
- are a single parent
- have a partner who is also a student - and one or both of you are responsible for a child
- have a disability, and qualify for the disability premium or income related Employment and Support Allowance
