Parents should start receiving federal child benefit cheques by July 20th.  The Minister for Status of Women, Patty Hajdu says the average cheque will be about $2,300.  However if the total family income is under $30,000, then the family will receive $6,400 for every child under six.

Hajdu says this is a major improvement from the past program and will help create a better life for children now facing poverty.  The money from the cheques is tax free and parents can use it for whatever they like including covering children’s dental costs.
