Students are not normally entitled to benefits but there are some that you might be able to claim. In addition, if you have a partner who is not a student then your partner may claim on behalf of both of you.
Parents are entitled to claim Child Benefit.
Depending on your circumstances and income, you may also be able to claim Universal Credit with child element. If you're working there is also a childcare element - but please bear in mind you can't claim the childcare element if you're receiving the Childcare Grant from Student Finance.
You may also get the housing element to help you with rent. This can be paid if you live in university accommodation or rent from a private landlord.
If you have three or more children you might be able to claim the old benefits instead, including Income Support, Child Tax Credit, Working Tax Credit (with childcare) and Housing Benefit.
If you would like to know if you are entitled to any of these benefits and/or how to claim you can come into ASK and speak to an adviser.
