    Hi,

    It will depend on the age of your daughter. Or the age of your youngest child, if they are under 5 then you'll remain on Income support.

    If they no child is under 5 what you can claim will depend on your circumstances. Do you currently live alone (no other adults living with you?) if you live alone do you currently claim a severe disability premium in with another benefit?

    That means it will either be JSA or ESA if its ESA then you'll need a fit note from your GP.
