Child Benefit is a monthly payment for each qualified child normally living with you and being supported by you. A qualified child is:
- a child under age 16,
- a child aged 16 or 17 who:
- is in full-time education, or
- attends a FÁS Youthreach course, or
- is physically or mentally disabled, and
- depends on you.
Child Benefit stops when your child reaches age 18.
