Family of 4 (Couple & two children age 5 , 8) I used to work 27 Hours a week up until May 2021 and get Tax credit , Child Benefits and Housing. Now I work only around 16 Hours a week. What will happen with my Tax Credit Renewal? Will they transfer me to Universal Credit? or will they punish me by asking for any over payments they made / making in the form of Tax credits? Thanks

I am unable to comment on individual cases without knowing the full picture.

We will not automatically transfer someone to UC.

If customer has not completed the renewal by 31 July their claim will not be renewed.

My advice is to contact the helpline to check the status of the claim and provide any change of circumstances.
