The cuts in child allowances approved as part of the 2013-14 budget will take effect Tuesday. Consequently, allowances for all children born from June 2003 onward will fall to NIS 140 a month, down from NIS 175-263 (the old rate depended on how many children a family had). This means a family with two children under 10 will lose NIS 1,900 a year.
