Scottish Child Payment

Source: The Scottish Government | | 19/01/2023

The Scottish Child Payment increased to £25 per week from 14 November 2022. The payment is available to qualifying applicants living in Scotland for children under the age of 16. The Scottish Child Payment was launched in February 2021, initially for children under the age of 6. It is estimated that some 400,000 children in Scotland are now eligible for the payment.

In order to qualify, the applicant or their partner must meet the necessary conditions.

The Scottish government website states the following:

You can apply whether you're in work or not, and if you or your partner are getting one or more of the following benefits:

  • Universal Credit
  • Child Tax Credit
  • Working Tax Credit
  • Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance (JSA)

Social Security Scotland also accept claims if you alone are named on one of these benefits:

  • Pension Credit
  • Income Support
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)

If your partner is named on any of the above three benefits and you are not, your partner should apply.

An application can be made online, by post or by calling Social Security Scotland free on 0800 182 2222. Payments are made every 4-weeks. There are currently delays in processing applications, but payments will be backdated to the date of application. Being in receipt of the Scottish Child Payment does not affect any other UK or Scottish Government benefits that you, or any person in your household, currently receive.
