    Morning ladies!

    Well just 8 days until my Elective CS due to breech baby and I'm just wondering if anyone can help...

    How do I go about applying for Child Benefit? Also, Child Tax Credit? And I assume it'll be backdated to when baby is born?

    Thanks in advance :)

    I'm having my 5th baby and I've always got my forms for the benefits in the Bounty pack that they give you after you give birth. I'm not 100% sure if the tax credit forms are in there, but the child benefit forms definitely are :). Tax credits number 0845 300 3900, just give them a ring and they will send the forms out.

    You do get it backdated to your baby's birthday.

    As with above - you get the child ben form at the hopsital - but you can't apply for it until you have a birth cert.

    With CTC&WTC I rang up and they sent the form out. I know they ask for the babies child ben number on the form, not sure if you need that to claim or not?
    It gets back dated x amount of weeks to babys birthdate x
