Child Benefit and Guardian's Allowance: Legislation and case law

In this section you will find child benefit and guardian's allowance legislation and case law.

You can use the menu to your left to select statutes, statutory instruments or case law.

Primary legislation, including the Child Benefit Act 2005 and other relevant acts, can be found under ‘statutes’. You will find all of the acts in their original form, and over the coming months we will be adding consolidated versions.

Secondary legislation, which includes the Child Benefit (General) Regulations 2006, can be found in the statutory instruments section. There you will find the main (substantive) child benefit and guardian's allowance regulations in their original form and over the coming months we will be adding consolidated versions.

If you would like to see ammending and up-rating regulations you will also find those in the statutory instruments section.

We will add alerts to the news section of the site as we add new and consolidated legislation.
