i recently found out my daughter nearly 20weeks pregnant,she is 17 and in college could someone plz tell me wot benefits shes entitled to,i am claiming child tax credit for her,and child benefit,will she get a grant?i dont know google says no so id thought id post here,plz help,many thanks
It wasn't necessary for others to be a little rude. The pregnancy grants do no longer exist, unless it's her first baby therefore she's entitled to the maternity grant. I don't think she can claim child + tax credit if you're still claiming for her, but if you stopped she'd be able to do that too. But not 100% sure, so perhaps you'd have to get more info from your area. eg jobcenter plus, ect.
When the baby is here she can claim Child benefit and Child tax credit for the baby. I don't think she will be entitled to income support as she is living with you and in full time education (this was the case for me when I had my son). I had my son when I was 17 and I was at full time college living with my parents. I got all of the above For any extra advise I would advise your daughter to go to connexions x
i'm 17, in 6th form and from the uk so i'll put a bit what i've been told i can claim
she can claim income support from when she becomes a mother if she's still living with you, but if she's living on her own then she can claim it straight away when she's pregnant i'd recommend that instead of job seekers allowance as you get more + she's still at college
if she wants to carry on in college, there's a programme for under 20's which enables them to claim up to £160 a week for nursery fees (£175 if you live in london) plus transport costs to and from nursery it's called Care To Learn.
and then obv she gets her maternity grant from sure start which is £500
hope this helps!
