School and Year Start-up Payment

If you’re caring for someone else’s child and need help with pre-school or school-related costs at the beginning of the year, you may be able to get the School and Year Start-up Payment.

You can get a School and Year Start-up Payment if you’re getting Unsupported Child’s Benefit or Orphan’s Benefit. You can get the payment for every child that you get these benefits for.  This payment is to help with the costs that mostly happen at the beginning of the year, in particular pre-school and school-related costs, eg clothing, school fees and stationery.

Applications close on 28 February 2018.  To apply click here.
