    On the gov website it says:

    How tax credits and other benefits affect each other

    Child Benefit payments are not affected by any tax credits you get, but other benefits like Housing Benefit are.

    If you get tax credits, you may get less:

    • Housing Benefit
    • Income Support
    • income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
    • income-related Employment and Support Allowance
    • Pension Credit

    You cannot get tax credits at the same time as claiming Universal Credit or Tax-Free Childcare.

    Contact the office that pays your benefits to work out how tax credits affect your benefits.
