Okay, has any one idea about WFTC? How does WFTC work? I知 a single mother and full time mature student. I知 currently getting student loan, Childs learning allowance and housing benefit. I can稚 get a student grant because I was over paid in my 1st yr and they deduct it from the grant element. I want to boost this money by taking a part time job. I will then qualify for WFTC; will the amount I earn be deducted from my student loan?

Let me check with my wife and get back to you. She's in the student loan industry.

..and why is this your first post on a Mac site?

WFTC? Is that working family tax credits?

I don't really know that side of the tax system, but you could have a look here --> http://www.directgov.gov.uk/en/MoneyTaxAndBenefits/TaxCreditsandChildBenefit/TaxCredits/index.htm

I'm not 100% on how it works for mature students, but part of the student loan is based on income. This might be affected if you are working, but like I said, I am not 100% sure.
