Child Benefit payments are changing in April - here are the new weekly rates

Millions of households will get a child benefit boost from April, when weekly payments rise in line with inflation. The government subsidy, designed to help with the costs associated with a dependent, is rising to £21.15 per week for the first child.

Those with more than one child will receive £14 per week from April 12. Child benefit is available to families with dependents up to the age of 16 - or 20 if they are in full-time education or registered on a government-approved training course.

The benefit is paid monthly, either on a Monday or a Tuesday, and there is no limit to how many children a parent or guardian can claim for.
