i almost hate to ask this q as i provoked such ire last time i asked about them, but someone might be able to advise me. you have to re-confirm your eligibility every 3 months. It's usually an easy process, but this time i want to close one of the accounts, or not re-confirm for one of them. I can't work out how to do it. The helpline is closed (presumably redeployed to other areas of benefits that need helping more at the mo) does anyone know how to close one of the accounts but not the other if you have 2?

I can't help you with your query - sorry/sozza in PP language. I remember your last post on this subject and I remember you were getting nasty comments from someone. It was totally out of order.

I have just noticed that Chris has posted an answer - he who knows everything

Don’t know if this will help but if you go to and search child benefits the answer could be there
Could you ask your childcare provider if they know?
When you re-confirm, does that cover all three or can you do it individually?
