We would like to share some exciting news around the launch of our new Scottish Government benefit Scottish Child Payment. The Scottish Child Payment will open for applications on Monday 9th November for families on receipt of a qualifying benefit and have a child who will be under 6 on Monday 15th February 2021. Payments will commence from 15th February 2021 and will be paid 4 weekly.
The new benefit will give eligible families on low incomes with children under 16 an extra £10 per week for each child. The Scottish Government has prioritised the early introduction for families with a child under six years old and despite the impact and disruption of Covid-19 we are able to start making payments from early 2021. We plan for the benefit for all eligible children to be rolled out by the end of 2022.
