HI MaraM,I believe when this payment started, it was 3000 Dollars,now 4000 Dollars, and next year goes up to 5000 dollars.I have found a web page which gives some information,but not the one I was looking for.
Wow! I can see why this would be a "touchy subject" in your country, DSTM! To hear that the mother is paid a lump sum of 4000 with the birth of each baby - well, I'm still struggling to get my mind around that fact alone!

My own thoughts is that the bonus should be paid in instalments,because often on TV it shows cases of the money spent on luxuries,drugs,furniture,anything but the purpose it was intended.
It seems like most of the time when someone has a litter of babies that the public helps out because it is so hard to keep up with. I call it a litter because thats how many dogs and cats have.. I think they do need help, it is expensive to raise kids, and that many could bankrupt a person. I don't know if the government should pitch in or not, a lot times they make things worse when they try to help. Such as the $4000 thing.
How did they get so many? Was she taking some kind of fertility drug?

I'm moving to your country!! J/K That sucks! People shouldn't be able to collect welfare since every time they pop out a kid they get paid. It's like your government is saying that they'll pay for every kid, but why not collect welfare checks on your breeding down time!
My niece is a prime example.She has had 7 children to different fathers and hasn't worked a day in her life.She has survived on Welfare payments and the baby bonuses when applicable.
