Hi there,

I'm trying to figure out how I can quickly switch our child benefits to my name from my wifes.

The reason being is due to my wife being just over the threshold for deferring her student loans. They take the benefit into account even though its shared and debited into our shared account each month.

Would it be a simple process of her cancelling the benefits and me reapplying in my name?

Cheers
Mark
