  1. Hi I am in a similar position with my 18yr old son. He finished his college course in June, applied for JSA and I was told by his Advisor at the Jobcentre to cancel my child benefit + child tax credit as it may affect his claim. I rang both CB + CTC the next day and both were stopped. A couple of weeks later the Jobcentre wrote to my son informing him he wasn't entitled to JSA because 'someone was entitled to CB for him'. I rang CB and they, after 2 weeks, re-instated the CB payable until the last Monday in August, then his JSA starts in September. I've contacted the CTC and here is my query....the CTC stops the day he finishes his course because he is no longer in further education. Why then does the CB run on and the CTC doesn't? Regards Deb
