I know it's a contentious issue but can anyone answer this please?
I've got 2 children, Boy1 is soon to be 16, but will be stopping in full time education, so Child Benefit will continue until he leaves or his 20th birthday if he's still being a "bloody student".
Boy2 is 11. If / when Boy1 doesn't qualify does Boy2 then become the "first or only child" and then receive the higher amount? IE: £20 something V £13 something per week?
It was a question that came in conversation, followed by googling and the HMRC isn't a lot of help. Interesting life I lead.
