Seems you get the credit if your were registered for Child Benefit.
And you may get child benefit if registered abroad, but seemingly only if you are paying the NI.

So probably worth the OP asking the NI once more.
Yeah. She didn't qualify for child benefit (income over the threshold) but was told to apply for it anyway (and say she didn't want it to be paid) just so she would be in the system for NI. Think she did it online.
