From Child to Adult: A guide to disability, transition and family finances – updated 2019

How are family finances affected when your disabled child becomes an adult? When is it most advantageous for a young person to start claiming their own benefits? Can you change your working hours to fit with your disabled young person’s new regime?

Working Families’ free transition booklet has sections for parents and carers and disabled young people, a step-by-step guide to better-off calculations and a list of useful publications, organisations and websites.

This guide has been completely updated in January 2019. The rates in the publication are from the financial year 2019-2020. If you have read the guide and would like the updates rates for 2020-2021, visit our rates and earnings limit page: https://workingfamilies.org.uk/articles/rates-earnings-limits/ .
