Child tax credits during the Summer Holidays before University
My 19 year-old son will be finishing his college course shortly. He is planning to go on to University in September. I am currently getting child tax credits for him, however, can somebody please tell me what happens during the Summer holiday - will they continue to be paid up until 31st August and then automatically stop (as he will be moving on to advanced education)? I did speak to somebody at the child tax office but they thought they might stop when he leaves college. Also, what happens to the child benefit payments for him? Thank you.
