Working tax credits

hairdog Member Posts: 2 Listener
Good evening, 

I would like some information, if possible please. 

My pip award has recently been reviewed and increased. I now receive enhanced care and lower mobility. My husband works 16 hours a week we receive child tax credit and workimg tax credit.  I have tried to do some research but i dont really understand any of it.  With my care component now on emhanced are we entitled to a higer rate of working tax credit? Its confusing as the way i am reading it, is if the disabled partner works is the only way you can receive it. 
Thank you for taking your time to read this.
