I have been living aboard in Turkey for the last three

Customer Question

Good Day,I have been living aboard in Turkey for the last three years, been married and gave birth to one child. I need to inform the JobCentrePlus of my martial status, name change, child and the fact that I am living aboard. Is there a form I need to complete? What are the exact steps I need to follow to ensure that I would be able to claim benefits from aboard.

Good afternoon, if you are living in Turkey then you would not be able to claim child benefit for your child as department for pensions and work do not have an agreement with Turkey.

If the child was living in U.K. or EEA country then they would be eligible.

If I live in the UK and I am unemployed how much would the child benefit be?
