Child tax credit payment in 11 days: Calculate how much money your family will get

How much money can eligible parents expect with their first advance monthly child tax credit check in just a little more than one week? Each kid under 6 years old could get you up to $300 per month and each kid aged 6 through 17 could get you up to $250 per month.

You may also opt out of the monthly payment program to get one large check for the total amount next year.

We’ll explain how the math and other requirements work in determining your credit amount. The IRS has been sending out letters to parents to let them know whether they qualify.
