You will not be paid an additional amount of Child Tax Credit, Income Support or Universal Credit for more than 2 children, unless the children were born before 6 April 2017 or exceptions apply.
One of those exceptions applies if a child comes to live with you informally because it is likely they would otherwise be looked after by the local authority.
To apply for an extra amount for that child, fill in part 1 of this form and ask a registered social worker to fill in parts 2 and 3.
Use the separate form for Northern Ireland if you live there.
Don’t include personal or financial information like your National Insurance number or credit card details.
