I know you can claim it if you earn under £100 a week. Does this include the top up you get for working tax credit? Thanks if you can help

you can earn up to £100 yourself and still get WTC and CA. but it is taken into account as taxable earnings, unlike DLA.

Sorry to be stupid but if you get wtc which takes income over a hundred will they still pay it or would it be a reduced rate?
