    Default Registered child care benefit

    I've made a mistake and put in a claim form for my child's (kindergarten) for registered child care benefit

    Only problem is I was just having a read and it says both parents should be working.

    I'm a sahm but I have claimed this before (for my kindergartener last year) and I was positive it said only one parent needed to be employed.

    So I guess I'll call in the morning to explain but now I can't find the link to say that the eligibility has changed? So now I'm worried I should never have claimed this?!

    Can anybody help?

    I was told both parents need to be working on studying at least 15 hours a week to claim.
    I think this was a recent change.

    I thought you are entitled to 24 hours a week regardless if you work or not. It's CCR where you need to meet the work/training/studying hours.

    Actually unless things have changed I got 24 hours of ccb and ccr even though I was a sahm because I was "looking for work"

    If you are volunteering 15 hours plus a week you are entitled too. I volunteered at the school uniform shop and worked approx 10 hours so I couldn't claim

    Yes, If you're looking for work you can get both also. You're also entitled to both if you get carers allowance/payment and parental leave up to 12 months. The op didn't say she was looking for work though.
