Child Benefit Payments Are Changing in April

In the News

Child benefit is available to families with dependents up to the age of 16 - or 20 if they are in full-time education or registered on a government-approved training course

Millions of households will get a child benefit boost from April, when weekly payments rise in line with inflation.

The government subsidy, designed to help with the costs associated with a dependent, is rising to £21.15 per week for the first child.

Those with more than one child will receive £14 per week from April 12.

Child benefit is available to families with dependents up to the age of 16 - or 20 if they are in full-time education or registered on a government-approved training course.

The benefit is paid monthly, either on a Monday or a Tuesday, and there is no limit to how many children a parent or guardian can claim for.

The new financial year starts on April 6 and brings with it a whole host of payment changes for those receiving benefits.

Worth noting the current rates - £21.05 for first child so a 10p increase to £21.15 and £13.95 for each child after that so 5p rise to £14

Every little helps though 😉

Our child benefit had really helped us out before now as I know I can always afford to buy his nappies and wipes, or new shoes and clothes etc. An extra 40p might not seem much to some people but when it pays for an extra packet of wipes or a packet of apples, it really helps
