DH and I are locked into a frantic budgeting situation after he lost his job today. He resigned but to be honest if he hadn't resigned he would have been dismissed so a compromise was reached.
Luckily he has his own business as well so has some self-employed earnings so with my SMP we are not totally destitute yet. I spoke to the Tax Credits people and it seems we will qualify for Tax Credits but what I didn't ask was if we'd be able to get them due to his resignation.
Somewhere in the depths of my mind I seem to think that we won't be able to claim for 6 weeks as he resigned. Is this right? I did set out our circumstances quite clearly but they didn't ask me why he was losing his job. I do have someone ringing me next Wednesday to help with the form but I could do with the answer before then if possible.
Tc form can be an absolute nightmare, you actually get a booklet about 10 times the length of the form, just to explain how to fill the bloody thing in! lol Spent a LOT of my time on the phone there talking people through filling them in. Just give me a shout if you need any help or have any more Q's will help if I can
