    Iam a single 45 yr old mum to a 20 month old.Ive been  claiming IS for about 9 months & keep seeing things about claiming child tax credit but I don’t think iam entitled.I struggle on IS to feed myself & little one but I always make sure she comes first.Does anyone know if I can claim child tax credit or is it just working tax credit if I get employment.

    Yep Anonymous is right – I phoned up to enquire about this a while ago and was told if I made changes to anything now then I’d automatically be put onto universal credit instead which would make me worse off! So I’ve kept quiet… xx
