If it is set to go up by 1.7% and I have done my calculations correctly (maths was never my strong point) then it would be an extra £1.40 a month for the 1st child, which would be an extra £16.80 a year. An extra £1.40 a month might not sound like much but it does mean another packet of wipes or more food for your child or a playgroup once a month. I have always been very grateful for my sons child benefit and spend every penny of it on him and that little bit extra means he will benefit a bit more.

I know it's not a huge amount and won't make much difference to some people but for others it will make a difference.

As per government's report £1,000 extra per year. But I am not sure how much per person as you said every single penny matters right now.
