child benefit what you're entitled to lead

How much child benefit will I get?



Changes to the child benefit system mean that not everyone will automatically get the same amount of child benefit, as was previously the case. Further to the Government’s child benefit reforms, higher earners will now gradually have their benefit taken away.

While over 1.1 million people will be hit by the changes to child benefit, the taxman has so far failed to notify a third of the families who will be affected. These households will not only have their child benefit cut, but will also have to complete self-assessment tax returns for the tax year ending this April - or face late fines that could run into hundreds of pounds. See our child benefit Q&A for more details.
