FREE SCHOOL MEALS CEILING FOR UNIVERSAL CREDIT

Created 08/06/2017

An earnings limit has been set in Scotland from 1/8/2017 above which households won't be able to get free school meals.

The new earnings threshold is set at £610 in the assessment period immediately preceding the application for a free school lunch or early learning and childcare.

Up until now all households on Universal Credit would have received free school meals if they had children.
