1. Overview

You may be able to get Income Support if you meet all the specific conditions including:

  • you have no income or a low income
  • you’re working less than 16 hours a week
  • you haven’t signed on as unemployed

The actual amount you get depends on your circumstances, but if you qualify and have no income you’ll get at least £56.80 a week.

You can claim Child Tax Credit if you claim Income Support and have children.
