Changes to benefit from April 2017
Changes to child tax credit
From 06 April 2017 child tax credit will be restricted to the two child amount for anyone who makes a new claim for a third (or further) dependant (a child under 16 and youths that are in education until 16 or 19).
All customers who are currently in receipt of child tax credit and have more than two children, will continue to receive the same amount of tax credits, this change will only affect people that are making a new claim for a third or further child from 06 April 2017. When they make their claim their child tax credit will be restricted to the same amount that they were receiving before the third or further child was born.
