Does anyone know if when you turn 18 and become a non dependent on your parents housing benefit claim, if you are a full time university student but working too do they take your income into consideration??

I found this:

A non-dependant deduction doesn't apply to a full-time student during term time or during holidays if they're not working.

A non-dependant deduction does apply if a student works for 16 hours or more a week during the summer holidays. You may need to ask them to contribute towards your housing costs.
