'Can i register the birth of my baby during the coronavirus outbreak?'
The government is now allowing parents to register the birth of their child when offices are ready.
In Norfolk a date will be set to restart birth registrations once adjustments have been made to offices, to make sure they meet social distancing rules to keep our customers and staff safe.
For now please *Click Here* to notify Norfolk County Council of the birth of your baby. This does not mean that the birth is registered. Norfolk County Council will contact parents to arrange an appointment to register the birth.
Birth registrations that couldn’t go ahead due to lockdown restrictions will be undertaken in date order, starting with those born earliest.
*Click Here* for up to date information from Norfolk County Council about about registering births.
You will be able to make a claim for child benefit or universal credit prior to the birth being registered during this period.
