In the Latest Stimulus News, a New Bill Would Initiate Child Support Payments Totaling $350 Per Month

The Child Tax Credit would, in accordance with a plan that has been offered by Republicans in the Senate, once again be paid out on a monthly basis; however, the plan does include some extra constraints that must be adhered to.

The “Family Security Act 2.0” is a piece of legislation that has been proposed by Republican senators Mitt Romney of Utah, Richard Burr of North Carolina, and Steve Daines of Montana.

These senators are all from their respective states and are members of the Republican Party. All three of Utah’s senators act as the state’s representatives in the Senate.

The act would provide a fully paid-for monthly cash benefit for working families, modelled after those that would be sent during the second half of the year 2022.

Under the terms of the plan, families would be eligible to receive up to $350 per month for each child aged 0 to 5, and $250 per month for children aged 6 to 17.


In the past, eligible families could receive up to $300 per month, which would be split into six equal payments and the remaining balance would be reimbursed when filing taxes.

These monthly payments, which were part of a larger package of stimulative measures that were passed during the COVID pandemic, were allowed to run out at the end of 2021 and were replaced by a tax credit of $2,000 for children under the age of 17.

“The Family Security Act 2.0 establishes a new national commitment to hard-working families in the United States by bringing out-of-date federal policies into the 21st century and streamlining them into a regular cash benefit.

The benefit would be given to expectant parents in the middle of their pregnancies, assisting them in coping with the costs that begin even before a baby is born.

According to an explanation of the bill, this plan is capable of being fully funded through the consolidation of existing federal spending.

According to CNBC, the payments would be funded through reductions to the earned income tax credit’s phase-in rate and the maximum credit available for single parents and married couples with children.

As a consequence of this advantage, employees whose wages fall within the range of low to moderate may be entitled to save money on their taxes. As a consequence of the reductions in spending, annual cost savings of around $46.5 billion may be achieved.

Additionally, the plan proposes eliminating the possibility of deducting state and local taxes, which would result in yearly savings of $25.2 billion if implemented. To accomplish this objective, the deduction in question would have to be eliminated.

In addition, the resolution advises doing away with the possibility of filing taxes as the major income earner of a family, which would result in cost reductions of around $16.5 billion annually. This would be achieved by eliminating the option.

If the child portion of the child and dependent care credit were eliminated, further yearly cost savings equivalent to $4.7 billion would be realised.
