Thankyou everyone, yeah they know all these details. I need to be working a minimum of 24 hours for us to be entitled to WTC they say.I work 21 hours presently on 15,000 p.a.We get CTC for our 3 year old 250 per 4 weeksPartner receives 250 ish per fortnight its def income based ESA he is on?
Suddenly occurs to me - has your partner been on ESA a long time? If they were previously on Incapacity Benefit and transferred to ESA they may have transitional protection which is increasing the amount payable above what we would normally expect. This would then be a contribution based award and your income or working hours would not affect it.
It's not easy I have never claimed for anything in my life, ctc was the first benefit I've had.He doesnt get PIP, he does have a car through motability?
In that case they are probably getting contribution based ESA which includes transitional protection arising from the IB to ESA transfer. You should look at the award letter to see how the award is made up. When claiming benefits it is important to try and understand what you are getting (I know it's not easy).Does your partner get DLA or PIP? If not they should consider whether they might qualify for PIP https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/benefits/sick-or-disabled-people-and-carers/pip/
