Hi everyone,
I need some advise please.
I have two children, a 4 year old and 2 year old. I would like to know when my income support will end.
I thought it would be when my 2 year old reaches 5 but I have read other stories that it will end when my 4 year old hits 5,
confussed. ?
Anybody in the same situation.

It ends when your youngest child turns 5.
A quick look on the direct gov website and you would have had your definitive answer. (That's what I just did)

Of course your two year old will be taken into account that doesn't make sense. It will end when your youngest dc turns five.
However if you anxiety is really bad you should consider ESA rather than jsa( or whatever it will then be called under universal credit)
