Additional child benefit payments are being issued to 21,326 Donegal families this week as part of the government’s cost of living support.
The increase will see €100 being added to the allowance.
The additional support means that €240 per child will be paid this month in respect of over 1.2 million children nationally.
Minister for Social Protection Heather Humphries said: “This extra child benefit payment will be received in people’s bank accounts from tomorrow. It follows the €200 Cost of Living Payment in April, which supported 1.3 million pensioners, carers, people with disabilities and working families nationally.
“Parents who receive the Back to School Clothing and Footwear Allowance will also receive an additional €100 for each child this summer.”
