What Is Guardian’s Allowance?

Guardian's Allowance NumberWhen a child loses both of their parents, it can have devastating effects. Not only do they lose their parental figures, but the struggle to find a loving home that can raise them in a healthy environment can be daunting. Who hasn’t heard horror stories of foster home nightmares? If you are in a position that you want to take in children as their guardian. There is a financial safeguard that the government gives to make the transition and new living arrangements easier. An allowance is provided, that is tax-free and can help with new expenses and daily living costs.

If you find yourself in a situation where you have taken in children. The British Government offers £66 monthly, in addition to the child care benefits you may also be eligible to receive. There is no income requirements to qualify and no penalty for being a high earner. It doesn’t affect your reported income if you are on social assistance and if you are a single parent, you will receive this allowance weekly.

To be eligible, you must meet the requirements to receive the Child Benefit, the children must be in your care and their deceased parents must have been a long-standing resident of the country or born here. In situations where only one parent is living, such as where the sole parent is in prison or the hospital for a period of two years or one parent died and the other was never known, you may also be eligible.
