Child allowance rates


The amount of the allowance (Updated to Jan 01, 2020) is determined by three factors: the number of children in the family, their birth dates and whether or not the family is entitled to a subsistence benefit from the NII.

Increment for a parent receiving a subsistence benefit

An increment to child allowance is paid to any parent who receives one of the following benefits from the NII: income support, maintenance (alimony), old-age pension with income supplement or survivors' pension with income supplement.
The increment is paid for the third and fourth children in the family and amounts to NIS 99 per child.

Deductions from the allowance

The National Insurance Institute is entitled to deduct from child allowance any debt of one of the parents to the NII.
