    Change of Employer - Tax Credits / Universal Credit

    Change of Employer - Tax Credits / Universal Credit 12th Sep 17 at 5:48 PM
    Hi All

    I currently work part time and receive CTC and WTC. I have an 18 year old at uni and a 16 year old at college.

    I've applied for a full time job with a new employer which sounds fab and would increase my earnings to the extent that I would no longer qualify for WTC, but would still get some CTC.

    However, I'm in a Universal Credit "full service area". Would a change of employer trigger a move to Universal Credit?

    I've read the official guidance but am still unsure!

    Many thanks
    Maureen

    Not 100% but I don't think a change in hours or employer would trigger a move to uc.
    Loss of employment or gain of when previously unemployed would

    No, that doesn't trigger a move to UC. As long as you keep CTC then they will just stop the WTC.
