Higher child benefit payments at age 6 and 12

When your child turns 6, your child benefit amount will increase automatically. It will go up again when your child turns 12. 

Child benefit for a particular quarter is paid after the end of the quarter. Are you still not sure what date your child benefit will go up, or when you will receive the new amount? 

Fill in your child’s date of birth and see what will happen.
