  • You change your address;
  • Your bank details change;
  • You move abroad either temporarily or permanently;

Latest Child Benefit Updates

As we know, Child Benefits payments occur every 4 weeks and there is no limit to the number of children you can claim for. In 2022, the Child Benefit rates are:

  • Your first child: £21.80
  • Subsequent children: £14.45
 

Across the Platinum Jubilee bank holidays, recipients of the benefit received their payments on Friday, 4 days ahead of schedule.

There is nothing wrong, HMRC processed this earlier due to the bank holiday occurrence in June. If you’re moving home this will not affect any refunds due to you from your Child Benefits. This also applies if you’re changing address later in the year when millions will receive one-off payments from the government of £150 and/or £650.
