Your DC will be asked how rent is topped up and what they live on at a much later stage.
All of this information comes through as the claim progresses, you think you have answered everything you need to and then there is a request for something else.
Make a copy of the claim form, collect all you need in advance and be ready to send in at the earliest opportunity.
You will need
Bank statements most recent 2/3 months I think.
Wage slips if any 3 most recent. However if working give it up,not worth the hassle.
Letter of proof of study from the college
Tenancy agreement - or a letter detailing terms of rental.
Good luck to any claiming,no idea what will happen when UC comes into force.
Exactly all this above. We had to write a letter to explain how much we were supporting DD. We explained we were simply giving her the child benefit we still get as she is in education and which is frankly all we can afford. She got her award through today. No idea if it will stand when UC comes in. Good luck everyone - we only accepted because we knew her rent could be covered as that would have been the final straw in her not being able to go.
