1,168,582 children to benefit from Children's Benefit rise

Posted on December 05, 2014 at 08:38 PM

Some 611,366 families around the country will receive a €5 monthly increase in their Child Benefit in January. The €5 rise will be paid for 1,168,582 children and is one example of how everyone is beginning to share in the economic recovery Labour is delivering.

This has been possible by the recent positive economic figures and the Government is commited to increasing the rate for a further €5 for each child in 2016, provided that circumstances allow.

Our aim is to ensure people feel the economic recovery in their everyday lives and the Child Benefit increase is an example of how Labour is working to make that happen.
