Birth Registration and Child Benefit


With birth registration appointments currently unavailable, Somerset County Council has issued guidance on how to make a claim for Child Benefit or Universal Credit prior to a birth being registered.


First time parents should complete Child Benefit Claim Form CH2 and send it to the Child Benefit Office – add a note to your claim to explain that you have not been able to register the birth due to COVID-19.


If you already claim Child Benefit, they can complete the form or add your new-born’s details over the phone on 0300 200 3100. You will need your National Insurance number or Child Benefit number.


Child Benefit claims can be backdated by up to 3 months.
