    Default What can I get?

    As my boy isn't yet capable of paying his own way yet - I thought I'd take whatever the government is handing out....

    As I'm a decent(ish) fella, I thought I'd stay on at work instead of becoming a dole-y.....I work full time and the good lady is now on maternity leave until next year....

    Does anyone know (who has done it recently) what we are entitled to....

    I'm aware of the following but dont know what they mean or if we're elgible..

    Child Tax Credits
    Working Tax Credits
    Child Support (CSA)

    Are there anymore etc etc etc....


    Many thanks in advance....

    I'll ask the wife when i get home as she knows exactly what you get having just gone back to work this year. A lot of it goes on your income so if you have a decent wage then dont expect too much.

    Has she got a good maternity package with her employer? by rights they only have to offer the staturtory pay (something like £102pw) but most offer a package providing you return to work after a set period and stay a certain length of time etc.

    PS, if you employer wont pay you paternity, you are actually entitlled to statuutory paternity pay of £100 a week (approx)

    I can't tell you what you're entitled to, as I don't have kids, but you definitely won't be involving the CSA - or I hope you won't already!!

    CSA is for absent parents who need to be pursued to make maintenance payments.

    I know it goes on how much you earn, but every penny counts, even if we just put it straight into his savings......

    She's on a percentage of her wage for 6 months - but then she's going back anywhoot.

    I'm applying for everything I can.......

    you'll get a £250 national savings voucher for your lad. To claim it you have to open a 'locked' savings account for him which he cant access till hes 18. That will come through the post automtically. We split his savings between that and one we set up. Thats so we can access some of his savings should we need to, eg if he needs something really expensive later on.

    As duncan says, ignore the CSA, thats not relevent to you. Child tax credit goes on how much you earn like i said but even a semi reasonable wage, ie 20K? wont see you get much. Its really intended for low income families. ie below £20K combined income. have a look here for details

    I get £38/month tax credits. Apparently I've never had it so good (according to Gordon Brown )
