UC benefit had been refused because he was in full time education
Hi, my son is 19 this month. He's autistic, receives PIP and is in full time education. I was told by Adult Services that I could claim Universal Credit on behalf of my son. I gave the job centre all the information I had on my son, EHCP, Adult Services assessment, PIP info and diagnosis from doctor and also a unable to work note from the doctor. I attended 2 meetings at the job centre and was told he may need an assessment regarding his ability to work and I was sent a questionnaire to complete regarding his condition etc. However, before I even had a chance to fill out the form I received a note on his journal to say his UC benefit had been refused because he was in full time education. The claim was then closed immediately. Has anyone had a similar outcome, should I appeal or is this correct? Thank you.
