The type of benefits and the amount that your daughter will be able to receive depends entirely on her situation and current circumstances. At the young age of 16, the subject of benefits can be a complicated one as there are many different factors that can affect how much benefits she can receive. If you care for your disabled husband and will have a pregnant 16 year old living with you, then you will probably be able to receive enough benefits to keep you going.

If your daughter is going to be living with you and her father but she will still be in full time education, then she may receive approximately £38 a week. This figure can vary of course. If she is in her own right, she may be able to claim around £32 to £34 and if she can prove that she is not going to live with parents, she could get around £43. These figures can vary greatly or be completely wrong, they are just a rough guide as some young pregnant girls cannot even claim benefits if they are living with their parents and still in full time education.

For more accurate figures that are going to be suited to your daughter's specific situation, I would recommend contacting your local social services to speak to an expert. If you would like more information before then, try accessing your local government website to see if they can provide you with some approximate figures. But the best people to talk to are going to be the government's social services as not only will they be able to give you the correct amounts, they will also be able to put your in contact with the right people so that you can get the process started.

The benefits that your daughter can receive  while she is pregnant at the age of 16 will depend on her circumstances. At the age of 16 the benefits for 16-17 year olds are complex and depend on the young woman's circumstances. For a pregnant 16-17 year old in full-time education living at home with her parents can claim £38.50. If she is eligible to claim benefit in her own right she can get £32.90 a week, or in some circumstances, including where she can show she is estranged from her parents, £43.25. Some young women of 16 and 17 may not be eligible for any benefit, even if they are pregnant and living independently. Hope this can help. good luck.
