Application Period for Monthly Allowance for Children to Start Next Month

Starting next month, families with children aged five and under will be able to apply for the government's monthly allowance of 100-thousand won per child.

According to the Health Ministry's implementation plan reported to the Cabinet on Tuesday, parents or legal guardians of children up to five years of age will be able to submit applications at community service centers starting on June 20th.

Applications can also be submitted online (www.bokjiro.go.kr) or through mobile apps.

The monthly allowance, which will be given out from September 21st, covers single child households with a monthly income of eleven-point-seven million won or less. For households of two children the monthly income threshold is 14-point-36 million won.

A total of two-point-38 million children, or 94 percent of children across the country, are expected to benefit from the program.

During his campaign, President Moon Jae-in had stressed a greater government role in tackling the country's low birthrate.
