I haven’t heard anything about an extension and I think unlikely as full roll-out finishes next week - but so long as those families get on tax credits now they will be OK and transitionally protected when eventually migrated over. Of course no good for those who their leave granted after 31 january…

Having checked CPAG page 1543 though - tax credit claims can be backdated to date of application for asylum so if, at this date, your area wasn’t full service UC the claim can be backdated. However, I don’t know if this would work if your area was full service at that date but you wouldn’t have been able to claim tax credits then because of having three or more children - anyone?
