    Are you asking about financial help? Are you claiming any benefits for him such as either child tax credits or UC child element? 
    As a student unfortunately he will not be able to claim UC in his own right. 
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    You should still claim the benefits that you did pre 6th form.
