my mate has just had a baby, so she has just been awarded child tax and working tax, she has used the online calculator to try and work out how much she is entitled to and the calculator worked out £55 for child tax and £79.00 for working tax, she has now been awarded her tax credit and they say she is entitled to £61 child tax and £2.34 working tax

does anyone no if this sounds correct

her bf works 40 hours a week

Try and see the advisor in Job Centre Plus - the one at our place was really helpful and managed to calculate what I was due. I then needed to get through to the Credits people and sort it but at least I knew what to ask for (They arent all helpful tho!)

If you know how much his wages is I'm sure someone will roughly know.

ok thats a fair bit of wage,could be right. Also they get a bonus until the child is 1 yr old and then it goes down I think,or used to do that.So if that ia right amount,it will go down after baby is 1.

The amounts mentioned at £55 and £79 would be paid if your combined earnings were under £6,420 yearly, over this and these amounts are reduced.

I would expect your combined earnings to be about £15,000 to give you the £2.34 weekly working tax figure.

Tell them to claim the maternity grant at £500 ASAP.

Oh yes good point,can be claimed from 30 wks of pregnancy ( unless rules have changed ) upto 3 mths after birth I think.
#16
she had the £500 already :)
#17
if the working tax is right at £2.34 would she be able to get housing benefit? I don't really wanna go by that calculator thing
#18
she could try, dont hurt to put in a claim, they can only say yes or no
#19
Their system is so messed up.
I just got a letter from them saying I owe over 8 grand in overpayments! I wouldn't even get that for a whole 2 year period so i know it's wrong. They have assured me it is PROBABLY a mistake and that if I ring back in a couple of weeks, it should be sorted.
Not reassuring given thier track record.

Depends if they're renting private/council or got a mortgage?

We rent council and we're not entitled to anything, although by most people's standards we're really well off. We get working tax and child tax (bf works) I'm on incapacity, and my partner gets about £700-800 a month after tax I think, not sure, he may get a bit more. It's enough to pay rent and bills,and still get some treats for us.
