child benefit 16
Families receiving Child Benefit for their child in the last year of school or home education should have received the reminder letters to confirm changes to their child’s circumstances that may affect Child Benefit.
If teenagers decide to continue their full-time non-advanced education or approved training, parents or carers will be eligible to continue receiving Child Benefit payments for their children.

It is quick and easy to update Child Benefit records via GOV.UK by using the online service (CH297).

From 30 November 2021, HMRC will stop making payments of Child Benefit, Guardians Allowance and tax credits, into Post Office card accounts.

HMRC is reminding any Child Benefit and tax credits customers who use this account to receive their payments, that they will need to notify HMRC of their new bank, building society or credit union account details. HMRC is encouraging customers to act now so they do not miss any payments once their Post Office account closes.

Contact HMRC’s helpline (0345 300 3900) or use their Personal Tax Account. To find out how to open a bank account, visit Citizens Advice.
