  1. I know how complicated it looks, but life is never black & white is it? I did ring the helpline up to inform them that I had gotten married but he had left me & they told me to continue with my single claim, this is what I have done. Will have have evidence of this call? I used to work on a helpline & I know for sure that not all calls are logged. I've decided that I'm going to accept overpayment even though it is wrong. I don't think I will reapply for tax credits either & then I can rest assured that I am not doing anything wrong
  2. I'm aware of that, it was just forgetfulness & laziness I suppose. I never had a problem with his post coming here, we've always been amicable so I suppose we both didn't see it as a problem so didn't change anything.
  3. Hi what is a SAR? My husband never officially lived here. He left me after 3 weeks of marriage, so my claim never changed from a single to a joint. When I rang the helpline to get advice they told me nothing had changed & to carry on as I was so that is what I've done each year, I've renewed my single claim in my maiden name as I've never used my married for anything
  4. Hi, my husband didn't get his own place because he couldn't afford it. He stayed with various friends for many months before his parents finally allowed him to move back with them. So as you can see it is hard to prove he lived else where. He has no credit cards or mobile phone contracts due to being in poor credit. So although I can show he didn't live here with my bills he can't prove he lived elsewhere because I allowed him to have his wage slips & bank statement sent to my house as a care of address.
  5. Every bill is in my name & always has been as I have never been financially reliant on him. Hmrc say they have evidence back to 2012 to prove he lived here but I can't see that they have. He's always used my address as a correspondence address but he's not had anything financial taken out at this address because he didn't live here & has never had credit. He claimed WTC in his own right in 2010/11 as he was on a low wage but it was not from my address, as we were not together. He never claimed again as he didn't qualify. Hmrc are saying he claimed from this address & I know for sure he didn't as he still has original award notice. Does this change anything? Does your advice now change?
  6. Thank you for your advice. I think I'd rather make it all official for my own piece of mind as the last two weeks of stress & anxiety have been unbearable. I have had my surname changed in work so now I pay tax in my married name so I think this will be the way forward. Are you sure claiming in my married name won't trigger any investigations for. Previous years because I just couldn't handle the stress even though I can prove he wasn't here
  7. I married a while back, he left after a few weeks & I didn't see or hear from him for a long time. I contacted tax credits and they said to remain in claiming in a single claim. This year I've been quite ill & have needed lots of help to care for my 3 children. Husband has stepped up. He moved in officially at start of October after I had a car accident. So I need to know do I claim for my joint claim using maiden name or can I now use married name? He wasn't here for the 3 years we've been married until now. All of my bills will support this but I'm just worried. I don't want to put further burden on myself & family

  9. they are back dating to April 2015. I want to know if I put in a new claim with a new surname will it cause further problems. If it will I'd rather not claim
  10. I had a letter naming partner, asking me to provide bank statements, bills etc for Aug-October 2015. On the advice of CAB I rang them up & said I'd like to make a joint claim from that day. Because my relationship with partner has been up & down CAB told me to only say he had moved in in the last few day s because all of my financial documents support the fact that I was living alone with children. I made the call to hmrc, the lady was very nasty, she wouldn't let me speak at all she just informed me that she was closing my claim from immediate effect & back dating it until April. So now I need to make a joint claim, I'd prefer to do it in my married name but I'm scared that this will trigger further investigation. Can anybody help?
  11. Hi, last week my single claim for tax credits was closed, overpayments being calculated to April 2015. I've been advised to put in a joint claim. My question is, if I open a joint claim this time using my married name (previously used maiden name) will this new name trigger further checks on past claims or will tax credits assume it's a new claim & take it on face value? I don't want to reclaim to get myself into further trouble although it is much needed money that my family needs Has anybody got any advice? Will I need to send in marriage certificate? Am I better not claiming at all? Help!!!
