    Default Child tax credit etc.

    I thought I'd try and get some answers on here , somebody's bound to know something!

    Ok, If I'm doing a NVQ level 3 at college (full time education, >12 hours contact time a week) but EMA alone is not enough to support myself, and I need to get a part-time job (~7 hours a week) what's the situation with child tax credit & family allowance?


    Will my parents lose the money they are getting for me at the moment?


    Im a bit lost here, because if they are going to lose ~£50 a week and I'm only making £40ish it doesnt seem to be worth it (If this means they'll want all that I'm earning for board etc.)


    Cheers in advance

    you will need to go to your local job centre and they will direct you to the right department, and they should be able to tell you if your intitled to income surrport or job seekers allowance

    Cheers for the link Robbie.


    But your payments can continue if, as well as working, your child also stays in relevant education or training. They must however have applied for or started the course before the age of 19. If so you can get Child Benefit until they leave or turn 20, whichever comes first. It doesn't matter how many hours they work.

    I think that's the bit that I need if I'm reading it correctly.

    They still continue aslong as I remain in education (NVQ) and am doing less than 24 hours of paid work a week.
