    Hi,

    No, this isn't classed as a change of circumstances that will prompt a claim for UC. If you are no longer entitled to tax credits, it will just end.

    No problem. Your tax credits will just be reduced, as well as your child benefit.

    What other benefits do you claim besides tax credits?
