Child Tax Credit: Families could see $350 per month for children even before birth

A new proposal would give parents $350 each month for eligible children similar to the child tax credit, starting 4 months before the child’s birth.

The Family Security Act was introduced last month by Senator Mitt Romney and would send the payments to families with children ages 5 and under.

Those with kids ages 6-17 would see payments of $250 per month.

The most families would see each month would be $1,250.

It will be required that families receiving this money be working.

Children getting the payments will also need to have an eligible SSN.

In order to get the benefits, families must work at least 80 hours per month or have that same amount of time toward volunteer work or job training.

Other programs would also be eliminated and changes to the tax code would be made.

Romney cited that marriage and birth rates were at an all time low as families faced financial strain.

He added that the family support system has not been reformed in over thirty years.

The goal is to help families meet challenges and raise the children within American society.
