Conditions for entitlement

Two types of payments are made for a newborn whose mother has died:

A special monthly allowance is paid to the spouse. If there is no spouse, it is paid to the guardian appointed by the court, or to whoever was appointed by the Labor Court for each infant born during that birth and who is living in Israel. 

A special benefit is paid to the deceased mother's spouse, if he stopped working after her death to care for the child.
A special benefit is only paid if the rate per day exceeds the rate per day of the special allowance; the special benefit is not paid at the time of payment of the special allowance.
