Tell us once
When you register a birth you can use our 'tell us once' service and we'll report the birth to the following organisations for you:
What you need to bring
- Birth certificate
- Completed child benefit claim form
- Account number, sort code and address of your bank to be included on the child benefit form (if it's your first child)
- Details of any benefits the person(s) named on the birth register are receiving or have applied for
Please remember it's your responsibility to make sure any organisation that pays a benefit has correct information.
