Is child benefit means tested?

Child benefit is not a means tested benefit, which means you are eligible for the payment no matter what your income is.

There are two separate amounts available, with a higher amount for your eldest or only child.

You will receive £21.05 a week for your eldest child and £13.95 a week for each of your other children.

However, if you or your partner earns more than £50,000 per year, it’s a different story.
