What can friend's son claim in addition to DLA?
My friends son has just finished school and has started at college. . He is 19, her tax credits, child benefit and maintenance from his absent father have now stopped. . She is not able to work full time because he is so unwell and not always able to go to college. .what can she claim to replace the money she has lost .. Or what can he claim in addition to his DLA . .he lives at home with her and she cares for him herself round the clock. . She does get carers allowance but this is a very small amount compared to what she has lost and her outgoings are still the same
