    They can't just say that they live with you... seriously?

    Are you in rented accommodation? if so, landlord should be fixing your boiler.
    Be who you are, say what you feel, those who mind don't matter, those who matter don't mind.
    They say that talking to yourself is a sign of mental illness. So I talk to the cats instead.

    Yes it will because they include Child Tax Credits as income, but thst will probably just even it out to the same as less CTC but one less child to feed.

    So if your child is not living with you but you make a claim that she is, what will happen with the £64 CTC approx and 20.70 CB each week?
