Child Benefit and Tax Credits: Summary of Child Benefit Review Regime
Child Benefit does not have a formal statutory enquiry regime in the way that tax credits does.
Child Benefit reviews can be made -
- before a decision on a claim is made (Regulation 7 Administration Regulations)
- or during the life of the claim to consider whether a claim needs to be revised or superseded (Regulation 19 Decisions and Appeals Regulations)
