Closed petition Allow full time students to claim universal credit during the Covid-19 pandemic

Currently most full time students are not eligible to claim for universal credit. Many work in the hospitality industry to support themselves and families. The government should lift the restrictions on who is eligible to claim universal credit during this global crisis.

More details

Measures have been put in place to support all workers but not students. Many have families and accommodation to pay for and may face the choice of dropping out to be able to claim benefits.
