    Hi @kami24. There are no new claims for Working Tax Credit (the exception being if you get Child Tax Credit, you can add Working Tax Credit to your claim, or if you're getting SDP, so can still apply for legacy benefits  because of that). When you move between jobs, there's a grace period of a maximum of four weeks where they'll continue to pay Working Tax Credit.
    There's some more information here that might help.
