Angelina Jolie's orphan allowance
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are eligible for around $2,500 in child benefits.
Brad registered his family at Brignoles town hall just after they moved to the south of France, meaning the couple are eligible for an "orphan allowance" of $508.97 for each of their three adopted children, Maddox, seven, Pax, four, and three-year-old Zahara.
Brad and Angelina could also claim a "nanny payment" of $975.84 a month for new twins Knox and Vivienne and biological daughter Shiloh, two.
A spokesperson for Brignoles council told People magazine: "We do not discuss individual benefits cases. But we can confirm that all resident local families with young children are eligible for certain benefits."
It is not believed the couple will accept the payments.
Meanwhile, it has been reported Brad, 44, has photographed his family for a magazine cover.
Angelina, 33, Brad and their children are to appear on the cover of W magazine in November in pictures taken at their French home by the 'Fight Club' actor.
The couple previously posed together in the July 2005 issue of the magazine for a shoot entitled 'Domestic Bliss', which featured them in a series of poses as a married couple to promote their movie 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith'.
