Job Start Payment is a new benefit to help you with the costs of starting a new job.
You can apply for Job Start Payment if you’re a young person who’s been out of work and are on certain benefits. You also need to meet the other requirements which are explained here on the mygov.scot website.
You can get a one-off payment of £250, or the higher rate of £400 if you’re the main carer of any children.
