Guardians Allowance

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 per week. You get it on top of Child Benefit and it's also tax-free.

You must tell the Guardian's Allowance unit about certain changes to your circumstances. / Tel: 0300 322 9080
