SureStart Maternity Grant

The SureStart Maternity Grant is available to help you with the extra costs that comes with having a baby.  You usually qualify for this grant if you have no other children (unless you are expecting a multiple birth, e.g. twins) and if you receive one of the following benefits:

  • Income Support
  • Income based Jobseeker's Allowance
  • Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit which includes an amount higher than the family element
  • Working Tax Credit which includes a disability or severe disability element
  • Universal Credit

You must claim within 11 weeks of expecting the baby or within 3 months of the birth. If you are becoming responsible for a child, e.g. through adoption, you must claim within 3 months of the child being placed with you.

In order to claim for a Maternity Grant, you will need to complete form SF100. The form is available through this link: Form SF100.

For further information or to request help in completing the form, please call us on 01483 727900.
