    Can u claim benefits when been sacked? 22nd Apr 09 at 6:39 PM
    my husband has just been sacked from his job after 10 years..a new company took over in the last year and are finding reasons to get rid of lots of people.

    we have a mortgage and claim child tax credits and i dont work as we have 3 young children.

    Can we claim any benefits now he has been sacked ...does anyone know what please?

    is it best to not mention to tax credits and just ring to change the details when one of us gets a job or will it work out better to tell them none of us are working?

    please please help..were really stuck as to what to do

    thanks x
