If you have applied and/or claimed for a free 30 hour childcare place, you must reconfirm your eligibility every three months.
You will be reminded to reconfirm that you are still eligible 4 weeks before the deadline. If you also receive Tax-Free Childcare, you'll be able to reconfirm your eligibility for both schemes at the same time.
You don't need to take your code to your provider or local authority every time you reconfirm however, you should notify your provider if you fall out of eligibility.
If you don't reconfirm, your childcare provider and local authority will be told that you no longer meet the requirements for a free childcare place.
