    WTC- 3 future increased payments. 12th Mar 18 at 9:17 PM
    Hi mser's
    Unexpected log in to wtc online site.
    Whilst viewing my wtc payments-noticed 3 last payments 2 in April+1 May.
    These 3 last soon to be weekly payments are +20 on my existing payments.
    Is this just finishing my entitlement for June2017-End May2018.
    Or can this be taken as my future payments if my wages were to stay as is since last year.
    Thanks mser's

    Edited it;s 4 increased payments
    12/4 19/4 26/4 + 3rd.5 -all+20 approx increase on my existing weekly wtc payments.

    WTCs run in accordance with the tax year and a new set of payments starts from April 6th. Anything you get from that point is pretty much a guess until you get the form (any time up until June) and declare the income you received.

    The WTC payments IIRC aren't going up but the amount you get paid will be based on what they think you will get in the new tax year, but you won't know the full amount until the end of 2018/19. It balances out, in theory, this time next year.

    Thanks mser's
    Today by chance whilst reading pension board
    I logged onto hmrc to view NI info
    By luck I found my WTC's are due to rise into 90 range from 63 approx.
    This is excellent news as had only 2 weeks earlier declined the option of returning to full time since completing few weeks trial@work.
    Not sure what the medium term holds MS wise thought a terrible amount of worry has been life tend past few months.
    Hope I can devise some sort of financial plan if for example I have to give up working-though hopefully not for a few years yet.
