30 hours free childcare – update on eligibility voucher code from the HMRC

by Laura Johnston

If parents taking up the 30 hours free childcare to commence in September 2017 haven’t yet received their eligibility voucher code from the HMRC, a temporary code will be issued via the national helpline number 0300 123 4097.

Advisors will check eligibility and then provide them with an eligibility voucher code if they qualify for 30 hours. Please note, this applies only for a September 2017 start.  You can find out if your family is eligible for the 30 hours free childcare through the childcare choices website. This also includes information on how to apply.
