If any of your children are leaving school this summer, you need to tell the Child Benefit office to avoid losing benefits. 

Child Benefit stops on 31 August or the first Monday after your child’s 16th birthday if they leave approved education or training.

Have you received a form from the Child Benefits Office? You must tell the Child Benefit Office if your child stays in education, starts college or training or decides to leave college or training. If you don’t return the form your payments will stop.

  • There are lots of other changes in your child’s or family’s circumstances which you must report. You could lose money or be overpaid if you don’t. To find out what you must report, visit this website.
  • You can check for any other benefits by doing an online calculation - it only takes five minutes.
