30 hours free childcare - Have you reconfirmed?

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 by text and/or email 4 weeks before the reconfirmation deadline. This reminder will come from HMRC and you will be asked to log into your childcare account and view your secure messages where you can reconfirm.

You will also need to notify your childcare provider that you have either reconfirmed your code or fallen out of eligibility.

If you don't reconfirm your code, your childcare provider and local authority will be told that you no longer meet the requirements for a free childcare place.


Sign in to your account and reconfirm your eligibility



If you have any difficulties with trying to reconfirm your eligibility, please call the HMRC helpline on 0300 123 4097
