Your 2-year-old is eligible for funded childcare if you receive any of the following benefits:
• Universal Tax Credits
• Income Support (IS)
• Income-based Jobseekers Allowance (JSA)
• Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
• Universal Credit – if you and your partner have a combined income from work of less than £15,400 a year after tax
• Child Tax Credit with an annual household taxable income (as assessed by HMRC) not over £16,190

Or if your 2-year-old:
• attracts Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
• is looked after by the Local Authority
• has left care through special guardianship or through an adoption order or residence order or
• has a current statement of special educational needs (SEN) or an Education, Health and Care Plan.

A Golden Ticket is also sent to the carers of 2-year-old children in care and to parents of children with a statement or education, health and care plan.

If you have not received a Golden Ticket but think you may be eligible, you can check your eligibility and apply at or call 0345 155 1013.
