    @jules2000, hello and welcome, I think you've answered the question already, the DWP don't have a margin of just over so you won't be able to claim tax credits.

    Hi @Jules2000 and welcome to the community. 
    Do you mean will you still be allowed PIP? I only ask as you've posted in the PIP section of the community.

    DLA is not means tested and won't be affected. For your tax credits then this is based on your earnings in the previous year and you will need to report any changes to HMRC.
