good evening everyone, i have a couple questions about my friends UC so i decided to ask for some advice on their behalf.

my friends son (17) is on her claim, he’s currently attending full time college and got a part time job. would that affect my friends UC? or even child benefit?

if yes, are there specific hours he can work before deduction?

i’ve read some articles but it’s all confusing,

thank you in advance

    Her son working will not affect any of her benefits because he's still a dependant.

    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.

    It doesn't matter how many hours he works it will not affect her benefits.
