Has anyone claimed Healthy start vouchers?
How do they check your income?
Our income for 2015-2016 was below the threshold but I won't be able to declare this to the tax credits dept until the renewal pack comes through

Do you receive working tax credits because if you do you won't qualify regardless of income.

No the wtc bit on the tax credits letter says we don't get any due to income

If your income isn't low enough for wtc then it won't be low enough for the vouchers. Have you had a significant drop in income over the past year?

Our estimate for 2015-2016 wasn't low enough but the actual figure will be below £13K due to changes

You can't get vouchers in arrears so you won't get them.

Even if my income for 2016-2017 is as low???

AndNowItsSeven Wed 13-Apr-16 21:54:57

No because then you will receive working tax credits.

HSV or like free school meals if you employed you can only claim if you work too few hours to be entitled to wtc. A few exceptions under 18, certain types of asylum seekers.

Is like not or like.
