Can anyone shed light on the following scenario please?


I live with my long term girlfriend in our own home, we have no children, I am in the support group of ESA (CB), I receive high rate for both components of DLA - do not receive any of the associated premiums as my ESA is (CB) and my GF works more than 35 hours a week.


The lady from HMRC told her to apply for working tax credits, so she filled in the online questionnaire stating her salary, my disability and ESA etc - it stated she was entitled to £3,600pa, but she had put my ESA in as (IR), when changed to (CB) she wasn't eligible for anything.


My question is this - I cant get ESA (IR) because of my GF salary, that being the case why would HMRC be under the impression I could and advise my GF to apply for working tax credits?


Thanks in advance.

With your disability on higher rate you would get an element for disability , depending on her wage she may have been alowed a certain ammount of working tax credit.


again this depends on all the information and probability etc she may have been correct thinking you were possibly entitled to something but at the end of the day the only thing which can give you a gaurenteed answer is the system that takes all your information and calculates everything to see how much you can get if anything atall.
