Yes you should do but it depends on your total income.

Yeah we did but yes it depends on your income.

Income is about 40k

Hmmm not sure, you get an extra £10 per week for the first year. If you are both working it may mean that you will be eligible to claim childcare costs.

Have you looked at the "entitled to" website and tried putting you info in with an extra child?

MadamAnt Fri 10-Oct-08 20:56:33

Yes, but I'm too pished tired to compare it to the current 2-child figure. blush

I doubt you would get more on that income, sorry other than the extra £545 a year for having a baby under 1.

Daisy's right, other than the baby element it wont increase on that income regardless of the number of children.

DaisySteiner Sat 11-Oct-08 12:19:54

Actually you might get more on that income if you have LOADS of kids - like 5 or 6.
