New Mothers - Maternity Grant

How can I qualify for a Maternity Grant? 

To receive a Maternity Grant:

– be insured through the NIS

– be insured but unable to meet the contribution requirements for maternity benefit

– have a spouse who is insured and has paid the required number of contributions that would enable you to qualify if you had paid them yourself.

Do I have to be married to receive a Maternity Grant?

No. If two people have been single and living together for the last two years, this qualifies as a spousal relationship. Single, in this case, also refers to widows, widowers, and those who have not remarried.

What’s the amount of money I’ll receive if I apply for a Maternity Grant?

You’ll be able to claim $1,220.00 if you went through a period of confinement.
