Working Tax Credit is designed to help people on low incomes, whether they are employed or self-employed. You don't need children to be able to qualify for Working Tax Credit.
You could get Working Tax Credit if:
- you're aged 16 or over
- you work a certain number of hours a week
- you get paid for the work you do (or expect to)
- your income is below a certain level
The amount of Working Tax Credit you get will depend on your circumstances and income.
You can apply for Working Tax Credits even if you don't have children or you're on leave or about to start a new job.
