Document Can I still use my NHS Tax Credit Exemption certificate if my child has turned 20?

Yes. The main applicant, partner or any subsequent children’s entitlement to use the certificate isn't affected. The child who's turned 20, regardless to whether they're still in full-time education, is no longer covered by the exemption certificate.

They may wish to complete an HC1 application form in their own right to apply for help with their health costs if they're on a low income.
