    Help with benefits 10th Mar 17 at 6:04 PM
    Hi
    Can anyone work out what we be entitled to please?
    I did online, so have a rough idea but unsure how accurate they actually are.
    2 parent's to claim carers
    2 disabled children on high dla
    Last year income
    £36k hubby
    £3400 for me
    This year my husband is having to give up work to help with the Care of his son. So £3400 each for carers this year income.
    Rent is £850.
    The calculation said we would get help with rent 3 b3d house and income support. And more tax credits. Could anyone work out figures. Is online accurate? He hasn't finished work yet so can't put claim in... Thanks

    Have you applied for the HMRC marriage allowance - whilst hubby has income over his personal tax allowance this could save him money

    Housing benefit and council tax will depend on your council.

    If on income support you'd receive the maximum tax credits which in your circumstances would be £287 per week.
