Im seriously confused, next year i will have two children so havwe based working out benefits on having two children as i will apply next year. When i work i earn £15500 and my boyfriend earns £20,000 but i am and will be on maternity leave so dont think it bases it on my wage. Anyway this is what it says im entitled to which i think is ridiculus-- (i defo put all the correct info in as did it 3 times ) Child tax credits £114.94 per week Working tax credit £89.88 per week Child benefit £33.70 per week Maternity pay £135 per week plus my partners wage surely this cannot be right?? thats far to much At the moment we have 1 child and are only entitled to £3 child tax credit per week so how can it possibly change this much --- headache!!
