It totally depends on your family income. The CAB will be able to help or call your local benefits office.

hi, i just found out about child tax credit, which is up to 5000 pounds/ year , depending on your income. I just found out i can get it and my baby is already 6 months old!!!

keren - hmm¬ im not sure as i think you need to claim before baba is 3 months old or you'll lose out - call the social security or CAB
