hi - for DC2 is there anything I need to do or do I have to wait for the registration?

I remember with DC1 there was a form in the Bounty pack but I didn't get one from hospital this time due to Covid I think.

gov.uk website says to call up but the answer message says theres no need?

thanks

You can download the form online.

Do I need to or after registering are details passed on automatically?

No the details are not passed on automatically
The website says the form is for a first child and to phone to add on a new child

You can claim child benefit without registering the child first. You still need to call the child benefit office to add the new baby to your existing claim

thank you @dementedpixie

tried calling and the phone line just cuts off at the moment, saying they are too busy.
