Multiple birth allowance


The multiple birth allowance is designed to assist parents who gave birth to three newborns or more in one delivery.

The allowance is paid to the new mother automatically, within a month from the day of delivery, into the bank account on which children allowances are paid, and for a first childbirth - one her bank account as disclosed to the hospital. If the mother who gave birth did not survive, the allowance will be paid to her spouse or to the infants' tutor.
