You could get Guardian’s Allowance if you’re bringing up a child whose parents have died. You may also be eligible if there’s one surviving parent.
The Guardian’s Allowance rate is £17.60 a week. You get it on top of Child Benefit and it’s tax-free.
You must tell the Guardian’s Allowance Unit about certain changes to your circumstances.
