  • Universal Credit to Tax Credits

    Hello everyone, Just wanted some information really, not sure who else to ask when I stumbled on this forum and thought this was the best place! I am currently on UC, single mum of 2 young children, not currently working. When my nearly 4 year old starts school in Sept I'll have both children at school and hope to work part time, about 15-20 hours per week if I can. Will I remain on UC when this happens or will I go onto tax and child credits? I think that the more I work the less better off I'll be on UC (if I start to earn over £503) but will I be able to switch to working tax and child credits if I start working more in order to be better off than I am now? I'm very confused! Any help/advice appreciated
