Benefits watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hey, i'm 17 and want to start working however, my mums claims benefits and universal credit. She's afraid that if I work the benefits paid to the other kids will be cut and the amount of rent we pay on our own will be raised. Is this true?

    no not at all. youre a minor and could not even earn enough to sustain your whole family.
