Child Benefit

Child Benefit

You can get Child Benefit if you're responsible for one or more children under 16 (or under 20 if they stay in approved education or training).  There is no limit to how many children you can claim for. 

Child Benefit is usually paid every 4 weeks.  There is a different rate for the eldest or only child and additional children.
