Change in circumstances
You must report changes to the Child Benefit Office. These include changes to:
- your family life, for example getting married
- your child’s life, for example leaving education or training
You can complain to the Child Benefit Office if you’re unhappy with the way you’ve been treated.
You can appeal to the Social Security and Child Support Tribunal if you disagree with a decision. You must usually ask for ‘mandatory reconsideration’ before you appeal.
Contact the Child Benefit Office if you have any questions.
