How long did it take to get your child benefit?

As above really! Registered O on Monday and they sent the form off for me, just wondered whether I should be expecting to wait for a while or if it's relatively quick? 


  • It shouldn't take too long.  We registered W at the beginning of June and got our first payment on the 19th of June.

  • It doesn't take long and don't forget it's back dated to DOB. We're finally getting round to registering Maya tomorrow. x
  • Ours came through in about a week, you get the backdated money straight away and then payments every 4 weeks after that unless you could opt for weekly payments.

  • Thank you :-) I just wondered if it might be here before Xmas, fingers crossed!
