Child support allowance reduced

Bituach Leumi pays a monthly allowance to mothers (as a general rule) of children aged up to age 18. It is paid on the 20th of every month, and deposited directly into the mothers' bank account.

As part of the budget, drastic cuts have been made to the allowance, with the August payments approximately 40% lower of those made in July.

The new rates are as follows, with comparison of the previous rates:

1. Children born on 31 May 2003 or before:

Child #
Monthly allowance (NIS)
Previous allowance (NIS)
1st
140
175
2nd
140
263
3rd
172
295
4th
336
459
5th +
354
389


2. Children born on 1 June 2003 or later:

Child #
Monthly allowance (NIS)
Previous allowance (NIS)
1st
140

If the above tables are a little confusing, the following link takes you to a simulator on the Bituach Leumi website to calculate your entitlement: http://www.btl.gov.il/benefits/children/Pages/Calculator.aspx (available in Hebrew only).

  1. Is there a difference if an older child's aliya date is after June 2003?

  2. Aliya date is irrelevant, only the date of birth.
