Child Benefit for a child over 16.
Your Child Benefit can carry on after your child reaches 16, if they’re staying in full-time, ‘non-advanced’ education at school or college, or starting an ‘approved’ training course. Find out what this means, when your payments will stop, and when you can get a Child Benefit extension if your child is under 18.
What if my Child stays in education or training.
You can carry on getting Child Benefit for your child up until their 20th birthday, if they’re in education or training that counts for Child Benefit. Education or training counts for Child Benefit as long as it’s either of the following:
- full-time, ‘non-advanced’ education (for example ‘A’ levels).
- ‘approved’ training.
Your child needs to have started, enrolled or been accepted for one of these types of courses before the age of 19.
You can’t get Child Benefit if your child is doing:
- higher education, such as a course at university level.
- education provided by an employer.
- education provided through any office they hold – for example if your child has an official role such as scout leader or Councillor, and the education is provided as part of that role.
- training that is part of a job contract.
Or call the phone number above and speak to a child benefit advisor.
