You get Child Benefit if you’re responsible for a child under 16 (or under 20 if they stay in approved education or training).
Only one person can get Child Benefit for a child.
Child Benefit rates are fixed until 2014.
You must report any change of circumstances to the Child Benefit Office.
You may have to pay a tax charge if you have an individual income over £50,000 and you or your partner get Child Benefit.
