KEY FACTS:
  • Support for children can be provided via Child Tax Credit (CTC), Universal Credit or Pension Credit - but which of these benefits can be claimed will depend on the mixed age couple's situation!
  • No new claims for CTC can be made (due to the roll out of UC).
  • Existing CTC awards can be renewed annually.
  • If a single person takes on a partner their Tax Credit award terminates.
  • Tax Credits are terminated when someone claims UC.
  • But when one member of a working age couple turns pension age - this change does not terminate Tax Credits.
  • Since February 2019 Pension Credit claimants who become responsible for a child can get extra Pension Credit instead of making a claim for CTC - click here.
