There’s a new UBI program that will send parents of children under the age of 5 $350 per month, starting 4 months before the child’s birth.
This was announced by Senator Mitt Romney under the Family Security Act.
Anyone with kids ages 6-17 could see $250 per month.
The most a family could see each month is $1,250.
There will be work requirements in order to participate in the program.
The Social Security Administration will run the program and send the payments each month to children with a SSN.
Families must meet a threshold of at least 80 hours of work per month or job training and volunteer work if they aren’t working a regular job.
This act would also get rid of some aid programs and change the tax code.
