Child Benefit Whilst Stuck in the U.K.

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

We have been stuck in the U.K. since March with no return to Thailand in the foreseeable future due to the current restrictions. Can I claim Child Benefit for my son he has a U.K. Passport ?

Yes you can. Haven't checked recently, but you could claim as soon as you arrive in UK (same as for uprating your state pension while on holiday in the UK). It may take a while to get approved. It can be back dated for up to 3 months maximum.

I don’t see why you can’t but I suggest you contact your local benefits office or go onto the yougov site it’s that simple will take you no longer than 30 minutes to get an answer

Not sure what you are smoking, but if those kids don't live in UK and or EEA they get nothing. 

 

Also you cannot compare it as your not living in the UK right now.. why would you have right for child benefits if you don't live there.

What country are you describing , if its the UK then children of (non EU) immigrants do not qualify for benefit if domiciled outside.

Why would you get child support if you're not even living officially in your own country?
