Older teenagers still eligible for child benefit

If you have 18 and 19 year olds living at home, who still attract child benefit, we do not count them for council tax purposes.

This could be because they are still at school, or have just left.

See also the section on School and college leavers.

To apply for a single person discount

You must send us a copy of a recent child benefit entitlement letter showing the name of each child who is eligible for child benefit.

You can scan and email the letter or send it to us using the contact details on this page.

If you have any questions about this, please call us using the contact details on this page.

Getting proof of your child benefit

If you do not have proof of child benefit, you will need to contact the Child Benefit Office to get a copy.

You can do this by calling the Child Benefit Office on 0300 200 3100.

The Child Benefit Office's opening times are:

  •  Monday to Friday - 8am to 8pm
  • Saturday - 8am to 4pm
