Post subject: GOING BACK TO WORK
I was wondering if I would be better off working 16 hours or more.
I don't want it to affect my money.
I've been told if I work 16 hours I only get to keep the 1st £20 I earn and the rest the jobcentre take off my income support I'd this true ?

If you have a child then you can get tax credits if you work at least 16hrs a week as a single claimant or 24 as part of a couple (one of you must work at least 16hrs though)
You would almost certainly be better off working and getting tax credits than on income support but there's an online calculator at direct.gov that explains it all and what other help you could get xx
