    No it's £50 now, or it was when Fin was born. I got his cheque through when he was about 6 weeks x

    I got Holly's cheque through a couple of weeks ago, but can't decide where to put it or what type of account, its all confusing!

    Mine came through after I got my child benefit I think, when he was about six weeks old, no don't contact child benefit, they are separate.

    Child Trust Fund Helpline Number is 0845 302 1470

    I opened Archie's the other day and the letter was in my bag, I didn't know it off by heart or anything :haha:

    The Child Trust fund comes through automatically once your CB is sorted so no need to contact them. Unless you have your CB and have no CTF!!

    It was £50 and I dunno what to do with it :haha:

    It changed with the government I think! and I think that babies born after jan 2011 don't get anything! though I could be wrong on that...

    I got £250 last week, but my daughter was born in July. 6 months I waited :S! But I didn't bother contacting them :)
