child tax credits

Postby mummatez » Mon Oct 20, 2014 10:54 am

Hi I'm looking for advice as I'm sure I read somewhere that you can claim extra tax credits for having fibro. Do you have to be getting pip or anything else or is having fibro enough? I have many other conditions but never claimed anything even tho I can only work 20 hours a week or I'm wrecked.
Thanks in advance for any help

I haven't read anywhere that you can. Hate them :evil: Always messing up.
I am a fibro fighter not a fibro sufferer. I will keep fighting from the minute I get up til the minute I go to bed.

Hi,

You can get child tax credits and working tax credits without any disability providing you meet the rest of the criteria (which I'm sure you probably already know). To get the disability element you have to be receiving PIPS. If you get high care you can get the severe element. It's not clear online as to whether you can get it without PIPS but when we contacted them they said I needed to be on PIPS. However, when my PIPS did come through they automatically adjusted my amounts.
Hope this helps.
