Child Benefit payment dates will change next month – check if you’re affected now
Those looking to make an initial claim for Child Benefit can do so from as soon as the child’s birth has been registered.
However, it should be noted that only one person can get Child Benefit for a child and so parents will need to decide who among them will make the claim.
This should be considered carefully as the claimant will get National Insurance credits towards their state pension if they’re not working or earn less than £166 per week.
To put a claim through, a person will need to complete a “CH2” form and send it to the Child Benefit Office.
Claims can be put through for children up until they turn 16.
It may be possible to continue receiving Child Benefit up until the child turns 20 if they stay in approved education or training.
It should be noted, those who earn over £50,000 will have to pay back some of the Child Benefit as income tax.
On top of this, changes in circumstances will need to be reported and if they’re not, the payments can be reduced and even halted.
