Child benefit

HMRC has announced that parents of new-borns can claim child benefit without registering the child's birth while General Register Offices are closed as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Setting out the new measure today, HMRC says that, while first time parents will need to fill in Child Benefit Claim form CH2 and send it to the Child Benefit Office, they should add a note to the claim if they have been unable to register the birth because of COVID-19. HMRC also advises that, if people are already in receipt of child benefit, they can complete the form or add their new-born’s details over the phone on 0300 200 3100.
