I receive this for being a carer of one of my other children. So the child who is in care does not have a disability but I still receive ccr as I am a carer to my other child who has a disability.
I have also received it while on Mat leave in the past too
You are eligible for rebate if you are a carer.
Maybe she's mixed it up with the child care benefit.
I was made redundant last year in July so it's going to be interesting as I was looking for work then decided to start my own business so I think I still qualify. Normally it gets paid in a lump sum in August so I have my fingers crossed.
It would be very hard to police. Especially if you do a combination of part time study and casual work. Though my study is supposed to be for 20+ hours a week but its almost completely autonomous. How do you prove that? Lol
Just updating for those following. My CCR Came in today. It was automatic. I haven't even done tax returns yet. Very happy. I was looking for work and then set up a little business from home that's not yet earning an income. Very happy
That's good to know @lilypily
