Pregnancy and baby payment – how much will you get?

Date: 
25 April 2019

The pregnancy and baby payment is £600 if you have no other children living with you, or £300 if you have any older dependent children under 16. A child counts as dependent if you get child benefit, child tax credit, universal credit or pension credit for that child.

If you have twins or triplets

If you have no other dependent children under 16, you get £600 for one baby, £300 for any other baby in the same birth. You also get a £300 multiple pregnancy supplement. For example, if you have twins and you have no other dependent children under 16, you will get £600 for one baby, £300 for the other baby and £300 multiple birth supplement - £1,200 in total.
