Working Tax Credit and reduction in hours worked

To qualify for working tax credit, normally you must work a certain number of hours: at least 30 hours if you’re aged 25-59, or 16 hours if you’re 60+, disabled or single with one or more children. But the Government has confirmed that if you can’t work your normal hours because of coronavirus, you will still receive your usual tax credit payments.
