Register a Birth

All births in England, Wales and Northern Ireland must be registered within 42 days of the child being born.


You should do this at the register office for the area where the baby was born or at your  local register office by declaration. 


Don’t miss out, claim Child Benefit by phone or post

If you’re not able to register the birth of your child because of Coronavirus (COVID-19), you can still make a claim to receive Child Benefit
