am I right in thinking that there used to be a benefit for single parents and now there isn't (or it's taken into consideration when awarding tax credits?)?

Student Loans have just sent me their annual form, there's a box for One Parent Benefit, I googled it and it sent me here:

I don't think i'm eligible but I need every penny so I was hoping someone on mumsnet could clarify?? And that might help others

It's was just a premium on child benefit , it stopped for children born after July 1998. It was only worth £2-3 pounds extra a week.
