Proof of childcare costs

If you pay a registered childminder to look after any of your children, we may be able to allow for this when working out your weekly income.

Please provide suitable proof that shows:

  • How much you pay
  • The period these payments are for and the number of hours of childcare provided
  • Which child is looked after
  • Your childcare provider's registration number
  • Your childcare provider's name and address

If you don't have suitable proof, you can ask your childcare provider to complete a childcare costs certificate.
