When do I apply for Child Tax Credits?


Does anyone know when you start to apply for child tax credits? Im 35wks and I think I have to wait till bub is born right?

Any help would be great thank you.



  • you cant apply for tax credits untill your baby is born as you need to send off the letter saying that you get child benefit, once you have sent it off it then takes around 6 weeks, depending on how busy it is x
  • claim your child benifit first then tax credits it will be back dated to when you have baby.
