Hi everyone I’m a single parent I have two dependent children one is disabled and I am in receipt of DLA and carers and a non-dependent I am currently on legacy benefits as my daughters carer but I am struggling so I am considering finding a work from home job 16-20 hours per week. I’m really unsure about the whole tax credit claim and universal Credit trigger . I’ve read that if you’re claiming child tax credit then your new tax credit claim is just an add onto existing claim so won’t trigger a universal credit claim ?
and what I would be entitled to in general. How do I get a current day working out of my entitlements.
I am including a link here to our benefits information page which may be able to help you. If not don’t forget that you can call our single parent helpline. They should be able to explore your options with you. Hope this helps, Justine
