From Child to Adult

From Child to Adult

As young disabled people turn 16, 17, 18 or 19 they become entitled to benefits and support

in their own right. What they’re entitled to may, or may not, depend on whether they’re still

in education, are job seeking or claiming benefits as the young adult they now are. Parents’

and carers’ benefits and tax credits can depend not only on the student or employment

status of their disabled sons or daughters and their other children but also on what their

disabled offspring are claiming. The guide available to download from the link below is from

Working Families and helps to explain the system.
