School Age Payments - Update
Applications for the School Age Payment are now open to families who get tax credits or certain benefits and have a child who was born between 1 March 2016 and 28 February 2017. If you qualify for the School Age Payment, you'll receive £252.50 for each child born within these dates.
The new School Age Payment has not replaced the School Clothing Grant nor does it affect such payments in any way. If you want to apply for both benefits, you can.
