    tax credits 14th Dec 12 at 10:21 AM
    Hello CAB rep

    I want to enquire about our status for child and working tax credits

    Brief intro

    My wife is french national working 16 hours a week on nat min wage started in oct 2012.
    I am working in shell garage 19 hours a week and occassionly 1 or max 2 shifts of 8 hours a week including 19 hours started this month am non eu national applied for residence card last month

    We recently moved to uk 6 months back initially we were living on our savings but now savings ended.
    We have 2 kids 2 year old and 4months old

    I am doctor by profession and currently in process of GMC registration so have plan of taking tax credits for temporary purpose till i get into my profession.

    Would it be possible to get tax credits as we are new here hence no NI contributions
    Secondly does it have any effect on my residence card application
    And are we eligible for local housing allowance as we are in private renting property?

    Thank you very much.
