Considering moving in with my partner and we are aware that if we do that I shall have to either increase my hours or get a second job to make up the shortfall of not having the support of benefits that I currently get on my own. Will i end up being "overpaid"by tax credits for the period on my own given that i will be earning more later on in the tax year despite being in a couple and therefore a different claim or even not even claiming? hope this makes sense and someone who may have been through this can help please. Trying to forward plan to limit the implications
