Scottish Child Payment

Wednesday 16th November 2022

The Scottish Child Payment conditions have recently changed. In some cases, you can get a payment for every child you look after who’s aged between 6 and 16. Families will receive £100 every four weeks for each eligible child under the age of 16. Don’t miss out on a double December Bridging Payment of £260, which will be made before the start of the Christmas holidays for children who receive Free School Meals on the basis of low income on 30 November. Payments for children who are subsequently registered and become eligible for Free School Meals ahead of the Christmas holidays, will be made as soon as possible in the New Year

You may be able to get Scottish Child Payment if all of the following apply:

The main person looking after your child (if any) might want to complete the application form, or use their bank details for payment. You can apply whether you’re in work or not, if you or your partner are getting one or more of the following benefits:

Social Security Scotland also accept claims if you alone are named on one of these benefits:

Please be aware, that Child Benefit on its own is not an accepted benefit for Scottish Child Payment. You must get one of the above benefits. If you’re not getting any of these benefits or payments, but have applied for one, you can still apply for Scottish Child Payment.

More information can be here: Scottish Child Payment  or call 0800 182 2222.

Please get in touch if you require any further assistance.
