What Is The Role Of The Child Support Agency?

The Child Support Agency’s main responsibility is to provide income support to families across the UK who have children under the age of 16 (and in certain situations children between 16 and 20).  The agency provides income for each child and often pays the benefits on a 4 week basis; however it can also pay on a weekly basis if needs be.


A Brief History of the Child Support Agency

Child Benefits first appeared in the UK in 1945 when the Family Allowance act was introduced in Parliament. It offered 5s (£0.25) for family per week for each child.

Since then, the laws have been updated and in 1977 the term ‘Child Benefit’ was first introduced into British society. Quite recently, the Conservative-Liberal coalition drafted new plans in 2010 to restrict child benefits to families who are earning over £50,000 a year.
