Other Support & Assistance Available

Government Assistance

Three government agencies (Work and Income, Inland Revenue and the Ministry of Education), provide financial support to families of multiples. The Work and Income Multiple Birth Home Help Payments are not means tested. These payments are available to all new triplet parents and are available to new twin parents if you have another child under 5 when your twins are born. Other support from Inland Revenue, Work and Income and Ministry of Education is dependant on your income. There is more information about the types of help available on the Multiples NZ website.
