Re: Child benefit... @AC

If your wife is not working then you should not stop the benefit.

Even if the bastards are going to claw it back, still claim it if you're not losing it through PAYE, and stick it in premium bonds before you have to pay it back with your next tax return. You probably won't win much, on the other hand you're playing the government's own version of Lotto with money that they claim is theirs all along.
