hi girls, i didn't return to work after having my daughter 1 year ago, my husband works, and after tax, including tax credits and child benefit we have 1585 per month 700 of that is paid out on blooming rent Rolling Eyes , which leaves us counting the pennies until the end of every month. Would i be entitled to any other benefit, such as income support? i would really appreciate some feedback. thanks... :

You wouldnt be entitled to any income support , your husband is entitled to working tax credit does he claim that?

Have you tried for housing benefit? and council tax benefit, If you go on your local council website, they should have a calculator to help you out x

Have you looked at it a different way and looked at your finances to see if you can save money at all ? moneysavingexpert.com is a good website to try for ideas. I'm going back to work part time and I've managed to save us 100 + a month by changing energy suppliers and cancelling sky etc
