    Scottish Child Payment is a new benefit being introduced by the Scottish Government to tackle child poverty. It is for low income families already in receipt of qualifying benefits. To start with, Scottish Child Payment will be available to families with children under six years of age only. This benefit will be extended to families with children under 16 years of age by the end of 2022.

    Scottish Child Payment will open for applications in November 2020, with first payments being made from the end of February 2021. Low-income families with a child under six will be able to apply for £10 per child, per week - equivalent to £520 per year. There are no limits on the number of eligible children supported by Scottish Child Payment.

    Social Security Scotland want to make sure both individuals and organisations have all the relevant information you need about Scottish Child Payment before it opens for applications. It will be running a series of virtual roadshow events throughout November 2020 to provide important information about the eligibility criteria and how clients can apply for the Scottish Child Payment.
