Working Tax Credit

This is payable to people who are working full-time. This means over 16 hours for single parents, over 24 hours a week for couples with children and over 30 hours for others. It can normally only be claimed by people over 25 unless they have children or disabilities. If aged over 60 people only need to work at least 16 hours a week to qualify.

This benefit is paid by HMRC and is based on annual earnings. People whose earnings change within a tax year will need to contact the Department in order to make sure that they receive the correct amount.

Unlike most means tested benefits there is no capital cut off and the calculation is based on earnings before tax.

You may find the Turn2Us Benefits Calculator useful if you want to find out what you are entitled to.   You can also get support with the application or other benefits advice from one of the local Providers listed in the Provider’s Box below.

If you are sure you can apply for this benefit but just need help to fill out the form, there are also volunteers at the Council’s Checkpoints who can help you fill out the form.
