Maternity Grant
You could get a one-off payment of 500 to help towards the costs of having a child. This is known as a Sure Start Maternity Grant.

You usually qualify for the grant if both of the following apply:

  • you’re expecting your first child, or you’re expecting a multiple birth (such as twins) and have children already
  • you or your partner already get certain benefits

You must claim the grant within 11 weeks of the baby’s due date or within 3 months after the baby’s birth.

You don’t have to pay the grant back and it won’t affect your other benefits or tax credits.
