Wtc/self employment

(4 Posts)

We have been in receipt of wtc as my husband was employed 30hrs pw and I am on esa/PIP. We have a son who is on dla.

Now dh isn't doing that job anymore, it finished 19/5 when he put in a claim for carers allowance. Currently in four r week run on of wtc.

He is starting self employment with a unpaid training course running 25/7-2/9. He will be earning from then on. And then won't claim carers allowance as will be above the threshold for payment.

Can he claim wtc from 25/7 or does he need to wait until 3/9 when he is actually earning? I'm confused with the changes to the wtc with eligibility needing to meet nmw.

Thanks in advance

I'm sure it's when he actually starts the employment, the course wouldn't count I don't think. Good luck with his self employment.
