Student Finance wants proof that my child is financially dependent on me, but how do I prove that? I'm not getting any benefits for him except the £20 a week that is statutory. No universal credit and he is too young for nursery hours. Has anyone been through this?

I would have thought that a copy of his birth certificate showing him being so young ought to be enough?

That's what I thought. The whole point of the grant is that we are not getting any other help so how am I supposed to prove that I don't have something! I guess a long wait on hold to SLC is my fun activity today...

If oyur getting child benefit which is the £20 a week you mention, then give them the child benefit letter, if you dont have one get one from the benefits office, thats likely what they are wanting.
