Best Start Grant | School Age Payment

Do you have a child born between 1 March 2015 – 29 Feb 2016?
The School Age Payment is £250 from @SocSecScot for families who get certain benefits or tax credits to help with the costs when a child would normally start Primary 1.

If you are deferring your child’s school place this year, you should still apply for School Age Payment from @SocSecScot between 1 June 2020 – 28 February 2021.
