    I qualify for naff all.

    Both me and DH work and when we do have kids the nursery fees will be over £600 per month (my sister is a nursery nurse) and we will only get a little help (like £85 a month) if anything.

    So we'll be basically forking out about £500 a month for the privelidge of going to work.

    Looks like I'll have to give up on the little luxury's...like food :?

    Dont even go there. :lol:

    I have had so much hassle with the Tax Credits people since they started it is beyond a joke.

    Every year i tell them what my OH earns, and i tell them of changes in circumstances as they happen, without fail. And yet i still get overpaid when i complain or make enquiries i get no-where, one minute there saying its your money, the next it's oh nope sorry we were suppose to stop paying you x amount of months ago.

    It is total madness. I personally owe them £1700 so far. I cant pay it back. OH has just started doing ovetime at work latley too so i phoned them and told them. I thought i'd ask them while i was on the phone what is the maximum amount of money we would need to earn to get off the credits.

    erm :shock: for 2 adults and 2 children in our situation our combined income has to be £58 thousand :shock: at least. We have no chance.

    We can get jack sh1t either. Four kids, legally separated and they still won't let me have a penny. I certainly don't earn more than £60,000. Of course they take into account the £3.60 a month maintenance payment I get for Daniel :roll:

    And if they ever do decide to give me anything, they'll only backdate it for 3 months, but they overpaid me a couple of years ago and backdated my repayments for the whole year. PANTS, I say, PANTS

    i had to owe them £3,000, might as well go on the dole, they will still find a way of getting it...

    i feel sorry for all of you that pay so much for childcare, i think the goverment should do something to help. when i lived in canada the goverment helped parents who went out to work, you only pay 10 dollars a day, and the goverment payed the rest, it does not matter how much money you made...
