Career break? What am I allowed to claim?

Depending on your husbands salary you might get tax credits. It will all change when the Universal Credits come in though, so make sure you're prepared for that.

If your live-in partner is working, you might be entitled to some tax credits (if he earns less than £26K/annum).

Go to Entitled To and you will be able to find out.

First thread from me, looking for some advice/info.

I'm currently on ML and am contemplating a career break while children are so small as childcare for two is so expensive and would take most of my salary.

We don't currently get tax credits or anything. Would I be entitled to this if I were to take a career break? Anything else?

Thanks in advance
