||<p>Child Benefit and Child Tax Credit support parents with the extra costs of raising
a child. Both are payable for children until 31st August following their 16th birthday.
After this, the young person must satisfy additional conditions: they must remain
in full-time, non-advanced education up to and including A-level/GNVQ level 3, or
equivalent, or they must be undertaking a course of approved training. If a young
person is undertaking a paid apprenticeship, or they are in training or education
by virtue of a contract of employment, the family is no longer eligible.</p>
