The payment, which is only available in Scotland, is open to parents or the main carer a child born between 1 March 2016 and 28 February 2017 and who is in receipt of tax credits or certain benefits.
Linlithgow and East Falkirk MP Martyn Day (SNP) said: “The Scottish Government is working to ensure that every child has the best start in life and these payments form part of that effort to build a fairer, more equal Scotland.
“The Best Start payments have been vital in ensuring children in Linlithgow and East Falkirk and across Scotland have the best start in life, with around £5,000 of support being provided by the time a child turns six.
“I would urge all families who are eligible to apply before Monday’s deadline.”
