    No it doesn't go up. When we had to claim JSA (as a couple) about £105 a week approx? and my partner recived that (as he signed on) and I recieved the child tax credits which is approx £50 per week for over 1 year old. (I assume more for the more children etc). So generally CTC stays the same and obv you lose working tax x x

    My partner lost his job a couple of mnths ago and had to claim JSA strange enough our child tax credits went down only by £5 a week but it didnt make sense to me, we were getting less money yet they cut that down, i was under the impression it shud have gone up!

    hi, not sure but i would think it'd go up. maybe look at the website, they have a benefits calculator on there which would tell you what you'd be entitled to.  its directgov.co.uk i think. x

    Hi everyone,

    Hope you and your little ones are well.

    Just a quick question, does claiming Job Seekers Allowance (JSA) affect Child Tax Credits (CTC)?  E.G. if I start claiming JSA will my CTC stop?  I'm currently getting £45 per week in CTC.

    Many thanks.
