    We have a new claim from a lone parent who has recently separated from her partner, but still has access to the joint account where the tax credits are paid into. (These were paid in the ptnr’s name) She has told HMRC of the change in circs & is waiting for a new award.
    How do we treat this income if the tc’s are still in payment as a couple, until the change is dealt with? 🙄

    Who’s withdrawing the tax credits from the account?

    We don’t know who actually withdraws the money.

    I think you need to ask. My take on this would be if she is withdrawing and using the money then include it in the assessment.

    If the ex is using the money then I wouldn’t even though she has access.
