Hi everyone

Hi
Could you give me an help and advice here please?
My Manager wants to change me to term time contract. Am working 16 hours per week minimum wages. Also I am getting carers allowance and working tax credit.
My question is. . If I spread the 16 hours term time per a year is going to be like working less than 16 per/ w. So are they going to stop me from getting working tax credit? By the way the term time weeks going to be 38 weeks per year.
I dont know how the WT work it out.
My last question if I want to work term time but 22 h/w. So if I spread it by 52 w. Is going to be 16hours. Am I still going to keep carers allowance and WT.??
Thank you in advance for hour help.

I suggest that you contact the Carers UK Adviceline team as they are the experts on all matters related to caring and benefits.
Need expert advice? You can talk to the Carers UK Adviceline five days a week, no matter where you are in the UK or how complex your query is. We do benefits checks and advise on financial and practical matters related to caring.

Freephone: 0808 808 7777
email: advice@carersuk.org

Carers UK’s advice and information team based in London is undergoing staff changes. This means the Adviceline is closed on Thursdays and Fridays whilst we recruit and train new members of staff. We will be taking calls on Monday – Wednesday between 10am and 4pm. . You can email or write to the Adviceline and we will respond to your enquiries within five working days.

The Carers UK Adviceline also includes a listening service, there for you to talk through your caring situation with a trained volunteer who understands what you are going through. Available Mondays and Tuesdays, from 10am to 4pm.

If you can’t get through on the phones (lines are often oversubscribed) then send them an email, they’ll usually get back to you within 3-5 working days.
Definitely ring or email the helpline, they will get back to you with a very clear reply. They made me £50 a week better off a few years ago, so I like to give a personal recommendation now and then.

Thank you very much bowlingbun for your reply
I called so many times and I couldn't get through. That why have posted here. I will email them.
The Adviceline is always busy - unfortunately !! Which is why we usually recommend that you email them.
Unfortunately currently the team is undergoing staffing changes which is adding to the problem, but they really are your best bet to get accurate information.
