Child Tax Credit

If you're responsible for at least one child or young person (under 16; under 20 and in approved education or training) who normally lives with you, you may be eligible for Child Tax Credit.


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 income and circumstances
