If you're expecting a baby or adopting then you may be able to get statutory maternity pay or statutory adoption pay through your employer or Maternity Allowance.
If you're looking after a child or young person then you can make a claim for Child Benefit and Child Tax Credit up until they leave full time non-advanced education, or reach the age of 20.
If a child has a disability you may be able to claim Disability Living Allowance for them.
If you're in an area where Universal Credit is fully rolled out then you may need to make a claim for Universal Credit rather than a new claim for Child Tax Credit.
