I’m a working mum of 2 children
i currently work 25hours a week, I also get help with tax credits and housing Benifit ect.
id like my partner to move in after Xmas
he currantly works 40 hours a week, no children, no Benifit help
whats the first steps in making this happen
first time living with someone so I haven’t a clue
Thank you for the reply
i only know my partners take home pay at the end of the week not his annual or gross ect so it’s hard to work out, do u know if I’m able to talk to someone in person about this?
Can I come from a different angle, If you love your partner and he loves you, love outweigh money every time, just go for it.
there is a benefit calculator on Gingerbread.
I wouldn’t recommend not informing the benefit agencies, as if they find out, it will make life harder in the long run.
Happy you have found someone you want to live with.
forgot to mention, you will save cost on having one accommodation other than two
We have been discussing this for quite some time and he does understand that as a house hold it would be our money now and not individual
im in a secure tenancy with a council house and I spoke to housing and they said I don’t need to have him on the agreement which I wouldn’t do anyway
as for his income he’s more that happy to give me wages slips whatever I need so this can go ahead it’s just working out who pays for what
ive been a single mum for 14 years and I’m used to paying for everything myself ect
this won’t be happening till the new year so was just looking for peoples help/advise
