Can 2nd job force switch to UC?

Hello! Can't get through to hmrc as phone lines are out of action... I currently work 20 hrs pw and receive ctc and wtc. I need to take on a second job of 10/20 hrs pw as mtg is doubling in march. My question is: Will this increase in hours/income mean I have to make a new claim and therefore be switched to UC? I will be quite a lot worse off receiving UC so would rather stay on tax credits for as long as possible. Thanks in advance.
