  • guarantee element of state pension credit
  • income support
  • income-based job seekers allowance

When does free school meal entitlement start?

Entitlement usually starts from the date we receive your completed application form, providing you are in receipt of benefits on that date.

Is entitlement ever reviewed?

Your entitlement to free school meals is reviewed periodically, and if we don’t have your up to date details we may cancel your entitlement. If our checks show that you are no longer entitled we will contact you to let you know.
