School Age Payments
Social Security Scotland’s School Age Payment is now open for applications for children born between 1 March 2017 and 28 Feb 2018.
The payment is available to low-income families on certain benefits and tax credits to help cover the costs of a child starting school.
Parents can access the payment, whether their child is attending school or not.
People can apply for the payment between 1 June 2022 and 28 February 2023.
Parents who are home-schooling or who have decided to defer their child’s entry to Primary 1 until next year, should still apply for the payment by 28 February 2023.
A parent or carer of a child may be eligible if they receive any of the following benefits:
- Universal Credit (UC)
- Income Support
- Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
- Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
- Pension Credit
- Housing Benefit
- Child Tax Credit (CTC)
- Working Tax Credit.
Parents and carers can get more information and apply at mygov.scot or by calling 0800 182 2222.
