Child Allowance or Kitzbat Yeladim is a small sum of money, paid monthly to eligible families according to the number of minor children in the family

The National Insurance Institure (HaMossad LeBituach Leumi) pays a child allowance to families living in Israel with children aged under 18.

In most cases the payment is automatic, with Olim having their details passed to the NII by the Ministry of Aliyah and Immigrant Absorption following their Aliyah. It is recommended to make sure that the money is in fact going into your bank account however and to be proactive in the event that payments are not made.

The allowance is paid on the 20th of each month.

The allowance was updated retroactively in 2015. Families should receive an additional payment in December 2015 containing the retroactive portion of the assistance.
