    Scottish Child Payment is a benefit administered by Social Security Scotland. It provides eligible families and carers with regular financial support to helps towards the costs of supporting their family and is currently £20 per eligible child per week. Around 104,000 children are already benefiting. 

    The benefit will be extended on 14 November to those responsible for eligible children under the age of 16 - and at that point also increased from £20 to £25. Once extended, it is expected over 400,000 children could be eligible.
