Scottish Child Payment has now started. Social Security Scotland are encouraging people to apply as soon as possible as they expect a huge demand.
This payment will provide families with £40 every 4 weeks for each child who is under six as at 15th February 2021.
If you are on tax credits or eligible benefits, visit mygov.scot to find out more and get your application in.
If you would rather call you can phone the helpline on 0800 182 2222.
It is different to Child Benefit and if you are eligible for Scottish Child Payment you will get both.
Getting Scottish Child Payment will not affect any other benefits you receive.
