Hi guys,

I do not work as i chose to stop at home and look after the little one, I do not claim income support either but i do get tax credits. i never delclaired I had signed off the dole 2 years ago as i really didnt think it would matter and if anything would give us more money. Because I am no longer classed as signing on our tax credits have been cut in half.... hows that make sense?????

so how do you support yoursef and your child.. do you have a partner?
#2
if you are not working/signing on you are not entitled to the tax credit

I think she is if her partner works but benefits laws are so confusing.

I have a partner yes should have mentioned that, thats why I dont get income support.
#5
I dont work, I dont have to sign my husband works & we get tax credits so I cant see why that would effect anything.

I would suggest going to [url]www.entitledto.co.uk[/url] & enter your details. It should then give you some sort of idea as to whether or not the figures are right.

Hope this helps

i guess you get more tax credits then if you're actively seeking work...

makes sense as they want all mums to work these days,

I think it should be a matter of personal choice.

has anything changed on your partners side, and remember you get tax credits this year based on last years income, and got last years based on the years before

oh so you stay home with your little one while your wife/girlfriend works?

good for you!

bet your child benefits hugely from having a daddy at beck and call :)

we've talked about doing that because i earn more than my husband but my work is less stable than his so at the moment it makes sense we both work.

It was for the best as she has a job for life and when we added up all the costs of child care and travel for me etc we would be worse off if i had stayed in my job, plus there is the piece of mind you know your child is getting looked after and theres always ebay when your strapped for cash lol.

Last year she was still on maternity leave for awhile which makes it even more confusing.
#12
tax credits are drastically reduced when your baby reaches the age of one.. that likely to be it?

in your new assesment should be the figures used to wor it out, check these and make sure they are right, maybe you where overpaid last year and there taking it off this years

would you be entitled to more tax credits if you were claiming JSA? Now they have realised you arent on it they have reduced the payments?
#15
dunn but good luck.... im a sahm and no tax credits or income support...did get tax credits one year but then huby earned above what they pay out for...so jus got me child benefits!
suspended#16
I find it all so confusing esp tax credits, one minute you they pay you so much then you have to pay them as they have over paid you it makes my brain hurt. Maybe try talking to CAB maybe they could help you x
#17
give them a call they will tell you why. They wont bite honest.
