Child Benefit

Child Benefit is a tax-free payment that you can claim for your child. It is usually paid every four weeks and there are separate rates payable for each child (£20.30 a week for your eldest child and £13.40 a week for each of your other children). The payment can be claimed by anyone who qualifies, whatever their income or savings (until 2013), including expatriates.

 
Who qualifies?

If you are responsible for a child, whatever your income or savings, you can normally get Child Benefit for them, even if you are not their parent. Child Benefit payments usually stop when your child reaches age 16.

 
How to claim Child Benefit

Expatriates will need to fill in the Child Benefit claim form  and send it via post to the address printed on the form. Expatriates can also contact HMRC on 0845 302 1444 to speak to a Child Benefit adviser.
