Post subject: Government benefits
Does anyone know where I can find out exactly how much a low income is.
I'm going back to work part time, 16 hours and wondered if i'd be entitled to any benefits of sorts.

yer u shud be entitled to some benefits. do u have a partner?

i think a low income is considered to be below 15050 a year.

you will be able to claim child tax credit which you are probs already claiming and now that u r going back to work 16hours or more u can also claim working tax credit.

if you are on ur own or u have income lower than 15050 u may be entitled to housing beenfit and council tax benefit.

i would either go into job centre or just have a search on the internet 'what benefits am i entitled to?' and theres a webiste somewhere that u enter all ur detaisl and tells you what benefits u r entitled too and how much.
