New welfare policies set up for Taoyuan citizens
Taoyuan City has news for families — the city government has launched a series of welfare policies to lessen the burden on families and the elderly, and to create a more loving environment.
For expecting parents, they can receive a childbirth subsidy of NT$30,000 for each child, and NT$3,000 in monthly child-rearing aid. For the elderly, senior citizens aged 65 and above are eligible for health insurance support.
Details on the policies, application methods, frequently asked questions and contact information are listed in the “New Welfare Booklet for Citizens.” Please refer to the district offices in your area or call 1999 for more information.
