    Reduction of hours for second adult part of WTC

    Reduction of hours for second adult part of WTC 11th Apr 18 at 1:39 PM
    Hi can anyone help?
    Reduction of hours for second adult part of WTC
    I am self employed and claiming WTC for me and my partner.
    I claim 16 hours and 7 hours per week respectively.
    My partner is considering reducing the hours worked to 1 or 2 hours per
    week.
    Will this reduction in hours mean we lose all or part of the second adult
    part of WTC.
    Currently I receive 2011 for 16 hours and partner 1960 for 7 hours
    thank you in advance

    Is this a wind up? Why on earth are you and your partner doing so little work?

    On what basis do you currently receive WTC? Are either of you disabled? Over 60? A carer?

    I am 66 yrs and want to retire but can't afford it yet, my partner is an unpaid carer for 3 adults and works too.

    Your WTC will remain the same then.
