Spouse ILR on PBS dependant route , Husband claiming Child Benefit

Post by ikishanji » Mon Jan 14, 2019 9:14 pm

Hi

I found my question in this forum but unanswered.

I am British Citizen now, and my wife is PBS(Tier 2 General) Dependant.
I started to claim Child Benefit of 82.80(per month) for my child once I got my ILR(some 4 years ago).

Now my wife is eligible for ILR and Application form has a question :

"Do you or anyone else who is part of this application receive any public funds? (Required)

Include details for your partner or child if you have one. Examples of public funds include Income Support, Child Benefit, Housing Benefit, Council Tax Benefit, Carer’s Allowance and Disability Living Allowance. See a full list."

On guidance page it is mentioned that for ILR one should not be claiming public Funds.
Should I say Yes or No here ?

Thanks

Saying no would not be the truth.

Say yes, you are permitted to claim in your name once you have ILR, no effect on spouse ILR.

Sorry for hijacking this thread but I in a similar situation as OP and would just like to point out something that OP mentioned.

I haven't looked at the online form yet (will start filling it out soon) but if the wording on the online form reads

"Do you or anyone else who is part of this application receive any public funds? (Required)

then according to my understanding, the dependent is the only person who is part of this application and not the main applicant as they are already a British citizen. So in this case as long the dependent is not taking any public funds, the answer to this should be "No".

Can CR001(I understand you are not familiar with the online forms but your opinion matters), any other moderator or someone who had been in a similar situation and has successfully received ILR answer this question?

Ufar I understand it the way you do now with CR001 answer I’m now confused. My husband and daughter are the applicants. I am a british citizen now and started claiming this after my ILR in 2014 was granted. I answered no but I’m not sure if that is correct.

I think it should be NO, as it clearly says anyone on this application. So if husband claiming CB and wife (dependent) applying. Wife should say NO.
