I have recently lost my job but I am being paid for the remainder of this month and the whole of next month.

What I need to know is, does this affect mine and my partners tax credits?

She is still in employment and believes we will lose out on approx 350 a month whilst I am 'not in active work.

As said above, I am due a full months pay in Jan and the same again in Feb.

She doesn't want to call up to discuss the possibilities slough I am being paid. She is just going off what the calculators say on the .gov websites.

My understanding of it is that if I am still in receipt of a salary, then benefits won't change until I am not being paid. As I know with JSE that I won't get a penny until I am no longer getting a salary?

Has anyone ever had experience with this, or even work for the government and are able to comment?

Any help appreciated.

I think you can have 6000 in 'savings'.
You might not be able to claim until your redundancy period (or whatever it is) is over.

Without the full details there are too many variables to be able to give an answer. I'm out of date with the current rules to hazard a guess.

I'm risk-averse when it comes to HMRC and DWP so basically I'd start asking as soon as possible. Its better to know what you are heading for rather than suddenly arriving at a cliff edge or worse still finding out you have done something wrong that may come back and hit you.

One thing you might have to be careful with is whether you are classed as working at the moment (if you aren't) even though you are being paid. Even then that classification might be different for different Government departments or claims.

My deepest sympathy Peter. I cannot offer any help except to offer my very best wishes for it to work out in the end.

It might be a good idea to go to Citizen's Advice. They will surely have advisors on tap who can tell you what your options are.

Good luck.
