The National Insurance Institute began paying increased child allotments to families on Sunday, after they had been cut by the previous government.

The higher payments are based on a government decision stipulated as part of the coalition deal between the Likud and United Torah Judaism, which sought to reinstate the child allotments cut in 2013.

According to the new NII guidelines, families with children born prior to May 31, 2003, will receive monthly payments of NIS 150 for the first child, NIS 188 for the second and third children, NIS 336 for a fourth child and NIS 354 for five and more children.

In addition, they will receive payment retroactively for the period between May 2015 and November 2015 of NIS 70 for the first child, NIS 336 for the second and NIS 112 for the third child. This sum will be paid as one large payment on December 27, 2015.

For children born from June 1, 2003 and onward parents will receive NIS 150 for the first child, NIS 188 for the second, third and fourth children and NIS 150 for the fifth child onward. They will receive retroactive payments amounting to NIS 70 for the first child, NIS 336 for the second, third and fourth child and NIS 70 for the fifth child onward.
