    You should be entitled to IS, are you over 18? I always check these things for people in work but then forget by the time I get home.. I'm pretty sure pregnancy is counted as hardship though so however old you are, you should still get it. Especially if you're a lone parent xx

    As long as your over 16 you will be entitled to IS and CTC.

    If you under 16 your parent/guardian will have to claim it on your behalf.

    Trashit hun - maybe you could make an appt to speak to someone at your local jobcenter? as they can tell you what benefits you'd be entitled to :hugs: xx

    you should be entitled to income support , child benefit and child tax credits, this is what my friend got when she lived with her mum, now shes living with her sons oh in a flat and gets child tax credits and child benefit still but not income support as he has a job, my hubby is in army and we live in army accomodation and we get child benefit £20 a week and child tax cred £38 every 4 weeks. xx

    if you go on the jobcentre plus website i think it is theres a page somewhere there that can tell you what you can be entitled to and can also give you a little idea how much xx
