Child Benefit is a tax-free payment that you can claim for your child. It is usually paid every four weeks but in some cases can be paid weekly, and there are separate rates for each child. The payment can be claimed by anyone who qualifies, whatever their income or savings.

Who can get Child Benefit?

You may be able to claim Child Benefit if any of the following applies:

  • your child is under 16
  • your child is over 16 and in relevant education or training
  • your child is 16 or 17, has left relevant education or training and is registered for work, education or training with an approved body

You can claim Child Benefit even if your child doesn't live with you. However, if they live with someone else, you can only claim Child Benefit if:

  • you pay towards the upkeep of your child
  • what you pay is at least the same as the amount of Child Benefit you get for your child
  • the person bringing up your child is not claiming Child Benefit for them
