Hi

this is my first post so i hope i'm asking in the right place. I have posed a similar question on another site but all the answers i got were why my partner should stay at work and not look after me!!! so be gentle : )

 

My partner has recently given up work to look after me full time, a friend already claims CA for looking after me so we have told the carers allowence people that there has been a change of carer and my partner has submitted a carers allowence claim form. I also get SDA & DLA. Thats all fine and i have no problem with any of that. We will have to claim IS, now this is the bit where i get confused, when you read the DWP website it contains IS rates and premiums, its the child premium that i can't understand. I know for new claims you can't get the child element its replaced with CTC, but when i have done a calculation the CTC comes up at no where near the £56.11 (per child) Personal allowence which IS states you need to live on.

I know it depends on how much you earn but i read that if you were claiming IS you got max CTC. The last calculation i did was on entitledto, which came up at £71.42 per week for the three children.

If anyone can shed some light i really would be most grateful. Thanks

Hi,

If your partner needs to claim carers allowance to look after you then there is nothing wrong with that.

You could of just made a claim to Income Support and claimed for him, and he would not have had to claim CA but by claiming it when you get awarded IS you will be entitled to the Carers Premium.

With regards to the child tax credits, if you are on Income Support you should get the full amount, it is in most cases the same amount you would have got for them if I.S would have been in payment for them.

But since 2004 IS have not paid for children on new claims. I dont think you would get just the £74, but at least £168.00.

If your partner was claiming working tax credits he needs to stop this straight away, as it will be taken into as an income, and he is not entitled to claim it.

Remember you will get the couple rate disability premium as well.

Good luck with your claim
