You may be able to claim back up to 85% of your childcare costs if you’re eligible for Universal Credit.
You (and your partner if you live with them) will usually need to either:
- be working - it does not matter how many hours you or your partner work
- have a job offer
How much you’ll get
The most you can get back each month is:
- £646 for one child
- £1108 for 2 or more children
You can claim Universal Credit online.
If you stop working
If you stop working you must report a change of circumstances in your Universal Credit account.
