Child benefit is a tax-free payment available for parents. If you’re a parent, you can get £21.05 a week for your first child and £13.95 a week for each of your other children.
To claim child benefit, you would need to fill in this form and send it to the Child Benefit Office.
However, if you (or your partner) earn over £50,000 a year, then you will need to pay some or even all of it back. This is called the “High Income Child Benefit Charge“.
