Japanese Children Get More Cash

Date Posted: 2000-06-10

Japanese lawmakers, worried about the dwindling number of children born in the nation, have increased child support. Until now, the state has paid 10,000 per month for every child up to three years of age.

A new law taking effect from June 1 will continue the benefit until the child reaches the age of seven. The support for three to six year old children is 5,000 per month. Only parents whose annual taxable income is less than 4 million per year will receive full benefits, and the rate the state pays will gradually decrease for those who make more. On the other hand, those who make considerably less can get extra support.
