Hiya ladies - Just wondering if ye all got yours this month - ours usually comes early in the month and it isn't thru yet for this month and my account is in serious trouble at the mo.

Childrens allowance first tuesday in the month
ECS second monday in the month (at least til tomorrow)
Oh Phew - thanks so much ladies - only one more referral fee so
Kizzie 08 - I know I'm bricking it bout budget - we are not keeping our heads above water as it is and if we loose the ECS will have to stop the 2 precious playscool sessions for the boys:-(
Wednesday was the first of April so we missed out last week by one day!
Next monday is the new reduced rate of ECS too, €83 per child instead of €92... though I've got this feeling it won't be lasting much longer after tomorrow...
HUH? When was it reduced? I never heard anything about it coming down.................
Jesus..........not to mention there mightn't be any after tomorrow.....I'm not going to be able to send DD to creche or Montessori or anything......as it is it's only two mornings a week.
It was announced in the last budget bambi
Families getting Child Benefit will be paid the Early Childcare Supplement for children up to 5½ years of age (5 years of age, from 1 March 2009).
The Early Childcare Supplement is a monthly payment. It is paid on the second Monday of each month. You will get a payment for the month your child reaches 5½ years of age (5 years of age, from 1 March 2009) but not after that.
As with Child Benefit, the Early Childcare Supplement is non-taxable (that is, you do not have to pay tax on it).
From January 2009, the Early Childcare Supplement is worth €1,104 per child, per year.
You will get €92 per month. It is paid in arrears on the second Monday of each month. For example, February's payment will be paid to you on the second Monday in March.
From March 2009, the Early Childcare Supplement is worth €996 per child, per year.
You will get €83 per month. It is paid in arrears on the second Monday of each month. For example, March's payment will be paid to you on the second Monday in April.
