Hereby we would like to include some useful information about obtaining Working Tax Credit.
Although you cannot yet apply online on the UK government’s official website www.gov.uk but next to all the handy information you can find there you can fill out and order a claim form and submit it. Once you do that, you will get the official claim form via post in about 2 weeks (you must count this period in excluding the evaluation period that’s an additional 5 weeks when you apply for a Working Tax Credit renewal too).
It’s essential for you to hold a job in order to apply for a Working Tax Credit. You can apply when you start at your workplace or even before you get started, given you already hold a valid paper confirming that you are legally employed. It’s also important that your wage is below a certain specified minimum.
The working tax credit is good for two sorts of people:
If someone is under aged or at a young age (16 to 24 years old ) and having a baby working part-time
If someone is above 25 years old having a job or part time job that’s below the pre-specified minimum.
Someone who applies for a working tax credit needs to prove that they work a minimum amount of 16 hours per week (for those having a baby or child) or 30 hours per week for those who don’t apply for the credit on the basis of having a child.
You can apply for a working tax credit if you live outside of a Universal Credit area
You can apply for a working tax credit it either you or your partner quality for getting a pension credit.
All those who cannot apply for a Working Tax Credit, they can apply for a Universal Credit instead.
Without a disability or a child you can only apply once you are above 25 years old
Here are the working hours and the ages for helping you applying for a working tax credit:
If you are single with one or more children – the minimum working hours per week is at least 16
If you in a couple with one or more children – one of the partners has to work at least 16 hours a week
If you are aged 25 – 59 - you must work at least 30 hours per week

One can claim working tax credit with a minimum of 24 working hours a week between you and your partner if you are either above 60 years of age and you or your partner are disabled. You can also apply for a work tax credit if your partner is entitles to get a Carer’s Allowance, is in hospital or in prison for a longer period of time.
