Pregnancy and baby payment – how much will you get?

Date: 
01 April 2021

The pregnancy and baby payment is £606 if you have no other children living with you, or £303 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 £606 for one baby, £303 for any other baby in the same birth. You also get a £303 multiple pregnancy supplement. For example, if you have twins and you have no other dependent children under 16, you will get £606 for one baby, £303 for the other baby and £303 multiple birth supplement - £1,212 in total.
