oh really ...dont you get tax credit as well? we get that as well ...i had to post a form of tax credits to them ...did you hear back from them? have they asked any of you for work focused interview?

and angelic......yes if you have a disabled child and your a carer and your partner looses hes job etc ...you can claim income support as a a couple because you both need to care for the child ...but if the partner wants to go back to work then hes better off claiming job seekers allowance...... its not much ......but just helps each other care for the child ............i wouldnt have done it without my hubby ...x

No, when they first brought out CTC, we were told that we would be changed over in due course, but it hasn't happened! I assumed when they reviewed the IS it would happen then but nothing! Not sure why, I don't know if we're better or worse off, but I'm quite relieved we haven't had the hassle yet - I know people who were switched over, IS stopped, but CTC didn't get paid for ages!
