This might be a strange question. But I am questioning everything since receiving a letter from concentrix working on behalf of hmrc. I am married. I work 30 hours term time and earn 10,000 a husband doesn't work(he does the childcare!)so he gets no benefits. We have 4 children. Age 8,6,4 and I am entitled aren't aye?? So confused!sad

There's a lot of it about, apparently.

Concentrix have been contracted to do a trawl -and scare people witless--

What does the letter say? Is it asking for documents?

Aye!! Loads of information regarding my employment. I've worked there for 3 years. Am starting to think am not entitled

It sounds like you are eligible to me.

Just send them the info and don't stress it. Thousands of people are being contacted as a routine check.

Go on the calculator and see - Google tax credit calculator.

Am just questioning everything now. So worried. Starting to think I'd be better of not working sad

You sound entitled to me too.

It's just very heavyhanded checking.

Do what they ask and you'll probably never hear from them again. There's a post similar to yours here most weeks and that's how they seem to turn out.

Sorry it's scared you. Unfortunately I think the bastards mean to scare people.

I would say you are entitled!

They are checking lots of people at the moment, including me,

Ring HMRC with your income & they should put your mind at rest.
