  • Scottish Child Payment extends to under 16s

    Created: 29/11/2022

    On November 14, Scottish Child Payment was uprated from £20 to £25 and eligibility was extended to all under 16 year olds.
    The change to this payment will make over 400,000 children eligible for the payment. Scottish Government analysis projects that the increased payment will take 50,000 children out of relative poverty by 2023/24. Around 104,000 children already receiving Scottish Child Payment for their children under 6 will automatically see their awards increase to £25.

    More information can be found at the Social Security Scotland website.
