Yes you can claim but must disclose your partner is subject to immigration control. Otherwise you make a joint claim and Home Office is ok with that.

Thanks Joppa

Will I need to tell home office about this? When the renewal comes up ? Will they ask me? And 100 per cent ok if i put and claim and tick the immigration control as im worried it might affect the renewal which i dont want

No need to tell them as they normally check with DWP themselves. That's why declaring your partner's immigration status is so important. While you may still get the same amount in WTC, as you apply jointly, not declaring it can make a difference between approval and denial.

As a British citizen, you are entitled to apply for Working Tax Credits. The caveat being that you must declare that your spouse is subject to immigration control. They will calculate your entitlement accordingly. Your own entitlement to tax credits has no bearing on your spouse's visa renewal.

With tax credits, all applications are made jointly if you have a partner living with you. This is regardless of if they can access public funds. Home Office is ok with that, provided you have declared your partner is subject to immigration control. Strange but true!
