Extra benefits for larger families

Families raising two or more children will get extra benefits starting March 2018, the government said on December 19.

The basic monthly benefits won't change and remain at €11.38 for the first child, €22.76 for the second, €34.14 for the third and €50.07 for the fourth and any further children. 

However there'll be an extra monthly benefit, with €10 more for families with two children, €66 for families with three children and +€50 for any extra children beyond that.

For example, families with four children will get an extra €116 added to their monthly child raising benefit, the Welfare Ministry said.
