Tax Credit and disability element

Can someone explain to me what the cut off point for tax credits is with regard to the severe disability element is. Does the disability bit (for a child) still apply even if the income is too high to get WTC?

We still get CTC with the severe disability element. Haven't qualified for WTC in years.

So I know I am being stupid here but say if you earned like 60k or something, would you still be entitled to claim CTC and/or the disability element?

It is really hard to find but this info on their site without inputting a load of information but there are 5 children, 2 of whom are disabled and one severely. Would you seriously get money if you earned this much?

It's very easy to use turn 2 us to work it out.

I've just inputted 5 children, one disabled, one severely disabled, with one parent working and the other being eligible for carer's allowance, and it gives an entitlement of £54.98 per week.
