Universal credit + student maintenance loan
I currently receive Universal Credit and I am entitled to the highest limited capability element, i also receive PIP. I currently work 12 hours a week, my work is really supportive in terms of my disability as I am limited in what I can do at work. I find working really gives me a sense of purpose so I don't want to quit if I do go to uni. I'll be attending university in September but really confused about how much I'll be getting come September and I want to try plan and budget in advance so I am prepared. I cant tell if my earnings + student finance will completely wipe out my UC amount as theres no simple way of calculating it. I receive around £680 from UC and £400 a month from my part-time job. My work allowance is around £512 a month so anything above that would be taken off my UC but then I read £100 a month of my student finance is disregarded for UC too so what would I actually be left with? Really appreciate any help, thanks in advance
