Young people in work
If you are a young person and are working, you may qualify for Working Tax Credit (WTC) if you:
work 16 hours or more a week, and
are on a low income, and
are responsible for a child, or
have a disability that puts you at a disadvantage in getting a job and be getting certain disability benefits (or did so before you started work).
If you're in a couple and you are responsible for a child, you usually have to work 24 hours a week between you, with one of you working at least 16 hours a week, to get WTC.
