HELP FOR FAMILIES
It is always helpful checking that you are
getting help that is available.
There are a range of opportunities for
help with childcare costs, even if you are
not claiming Universal Credit.
It is also worth registering for Child
Benefit - even if someone earns above
the eligible limit for an allowance, the
person applying may accrue National
Insurance credits towards a state
pension and it will ensure a child is
allocated a National Insurance number at
16 without applying.
