Is there anything else I can claim to help in this situation
I am looking for some advise. My son is disabled and just turned 20. I work 20 hours and I am his carer. I recieved disabled tax credit which has stopped. This is a massive drop in income and I am going to struggle paying my rent. He is now classed as a non dependent although completely dependent on me. He receives full pip award and we use the mobility component for a motability car. Is there anything else I can claim to help in this situation. I think I would actually be better off not doing the 20 hours work . Amy help or advice would be appreciated
