    ESA, Child Tax Credits - Advice Thanks...

    Happy New Year!

    My son’s father died on New Year Day. The Child Maintenance has informed me, they will be collecting the rest of the arrears and closed the account. Do I need to informed the ESA and Child Tax Credits that I will no longer received Child Support? Am I entitled to get more help, that I will not be receiving any child support.

    Any advice, much appreciated.

    Yes you should inform them, send a copy of the CM letter.

    It won't affect your ESA payment, CM payments are disregarded for benefits.
    I believe it's the same with CTC.
    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.

    Migration from ESA to Universal Credit- Click here for information.
