School Age Payment

Reminder to apply for School Age Payment before deadline

It is paid automatically to parents and main carers of children who get Scottish Child Payment. If you don’t qualify for Scottish Child Payment, you might still be able to get School Age Payment, for example if you get housing benefit.
