Welcome to immigrationboards.com!
That is the action that has been taken by others, and it did not cause a problem for them.I noted on the form under the question of public funds, yes, and ticked the relevant boxes under my name.
Thanks very much for your information. I had the same question and found the answers..John wrote: The problem is that the form is badly-designed, and really does not cope with the actual legislation, so your action is probably the best in the circumstances.
Thanks John for your expert reply. I read the Public Fund pdf document in UKBA website.John wrote:Your problem is that you are equating "benefits" and "public funds", but in fact not every benefit paid by the Government is within the definition of Public Funds.
Thanks very much John, reassuring.. Now also I know where to refer to if case worker argue.. hope that will not be the case..John wrote:
The HB is covered by para 6A, and it would be a problem if more HB was being paid because your wife is living there. However given that you clearly have child/children in your household, it is the case that it is impossible for more HB to be paid because your wife is there.
In short, those benefit claims are totally OK.
How will Universal Credits treat a couple which consists of one British Citizen with
Children, and their non-EEA national partner/wife ETC who has “No Recourse to Public
If someone who is eligible to claim Universal Credit has a partner who is a person subject to
immigration control with no recourse to public funds, only the eligible claimant will be entitled to
an award. However the partner’s income/capital will be taken into account when assessing the
means of the whole household, and this will affect the amount of the claimant’s award.
Dear Mr Siren
A change to tax credit rules
There has been a change to the tax credit entitlement rules that affects some customers who are subject to immigration control. Because of this, there is a change to your entitlement to Working Tax Credit.
As Mrs Siren has not yet established their right to stay permanently in the UK they will not have access to public funds in the same way as those who already have.
How this affects your tax credits entitlement
You are still entitled to claim tax credits and you will still need to claim as a couple. But, you are no longer entitled to the second adult element of Working Tax credit. This means that we may reduce the amount of your tax credits award from 25 June 2012.
I enclose a decision notice that sets out your new Working Tax Credit entitlement in more detail.
