Full Time Study/CA/UC

All about money
Hi

I just started an access course to higher education (distance learning) and found out it counts as a full time course. Reading about how this effects my benefits, it would appear I can no longer get CA and wouldn't normally get UC either. But the lines aren't that clear (when are they).
My situation; full time carer to husband, work as and when needed (zero hour contract, which works for us) so income has been below the CA threshold, three dependants, UC with no claimant commitments.
As I already have a UC award with no claimant commitments and no student income, that may not be affected, possibly, from what I have read, but can't be sure.

Can anyone clear this up for me please?
Many thanks.

I am unable to advise you on this but you can email the helpline advice@carersuk.org
See if they can advise you or keep checking back for replies.

Also ask them about where you stand when you go onto higher education.
