16 year old wanting an apprenticeship
Hi all. I live alone with my 16 year old on private rented accommodation. I recieve EESA, with SDP, standard rate PIP for care and HB which does not cover the whole cost of the rent. I have recently become profoundly deaf and I cannot effectively communicate without an interpreter writing things down for me. My question is if my 16 year old decided to take the apprenticeship how will the effect HB and EESA as he will no longer be a dependent. Used 3 different benefit calculators and each have different figures. I'm worried that I will lose my home even with his contribution. He will earn £160 a week.
