Two-child limit in UC and tax credits

The two-child limit is perhaps the most controversial welfare reform measure yet, affecting large numbers of low-income families both in and out of work. This half-day course looks in detail at how it is being implemented, who is affected and when exceptions apply. It also provides participants with an opportunity to explore implications in the context of human rights and share updates on legal challenges.

The course covers:

  • Child tax credit rules and families who already have more than two children
  • Universal credit rules and transitional protection
  • Exceptions
  • Legal challenges

The course is aimed at more experienced advisers, who are confident about covering this issue in more complex detail.
