Moving from Child Tax Credits to UC
I work full time, earning 40K. Have 4 children. My wife is a housewife. We are currently getting child tax credit and child benefit for all 4 kids.
I get the following figures from the entitledto caluculator (tried all 3, get the same from other too)
I also called the citizen advice, they said that the calculators are pretty accurate but it doesnt look right to me.
First of all we dont claim housing benefit as we dont belive we are eligible for it (We pay £700 to private landlord)
I havent recived any letter for migration yet, Am i better off staying with child tax credits or consider moving to UC ?
