Are the 'Sure Start Maternity Grant' and 'Child Tax Credits' considered public funds in PR applications?

Post by Cocoa » Tue Mar 27, 2018 5:24 pm

Hello,

I need to apply for me permanent residence card as a non EEA spouse of a EEA national in October. We recently had a baby and i want to know if any of the following are considered public funds? (if they are they would affect my application and I would not request them):

1) Sure Start Maternity Grant
2) Child Tax Credit

If it is ok to get child tax credits would it be better for me (employed) to request them or would it be better for my husband to request them (self-employed) for the purposes and benefit of our application.

Many thanks in advance for your help :)

The Child Tax credit counts as on of the benefits that make you eligible for the sure start maternity grant but if any of these are considered public funds I would request them.

Could someone please help me confirm?
