You could get Child Tax Credit for each child you’re responsible for if they’re:
- under 16
- under 20 and in approved education or training
You don’t need to be working to claim Child Tax Credit.
You get money for each child that qualifies and Child Tax Credit won’t affect your Child Benefit.
How much you get depends on your circumstances - you can use the tax credit calculator to work this out.
Only one household can get Child Tax Credit for a child.
You can’t claim tax credits and Universal Credit at the same time.
