Discount for 18 year old in receipt of child benefit

Notes of Guidance

This discount will apply to a person on a day if he or she is:

  1. 18 years of age; but
  2. is a person in respect of whom another person is entitled to child benefit.

In practice, this discount will usually apply to 18 year olds in their last year at school, at a sixth form college, or on some courses of non-advanced further education.

The discount will cease on the day that Child Benefit ceases. This will be whichever is earlier of:

  1. the person’s 19th birthday
  2. whichever of the following days occur next after he or she ceases in full-time non-advanced education:
    • - the first Monday in January
    • - the first Monday after Easter
    • - the first Monday in September;
  3. the day on which he or she takes up full time employment.

When the discount ceases as a result of (1) above, a discount for 19 year olds still at school or further education may still apply. Please contact this office as indicated overleaf.
