WORKING FAMILY TAX CREDITS

can anyone answer this for me?

how do you qualify for them?

do you have to work a minimum/max amount of hours?

what is the earnings cut off point before you qualify?

basically, i am working 21 hours a week at the moment in order to earn enough money to make up the 400 i was getting as maternity pay. i really dont wnat to work this many hours, and a friend mentioned that she was recieving WFTC and only working 16 hours - i was wondering if i reduced my hours would i qualify and would that then make up the difference in the money that i would lose from reducing my wages.

we already get about £20 a week on tax credits, and we do have a low income, but appreneltly not low enough for WFTC when i informed them that i had gone back to work.

thanks xx
