None. The less income you have, and the more babies you can pop out, the more the state will pay you. To maximize the benefit, get married only religiously, and not government licensed - single mother gets more benefits, and then pays to rent the house from the father. The single husband is now free to maximize income, but frankly the level doesn't matter as the kids are already covered by the state.

Only if dad's name is on the birth certificate. If mom claims she had a drunken encounter at a party and can't identify the father, nobody will question it.

Here's a thought, keep your cynical answers to yourself. OP is looking for advice.

OP, it's not so much how much you make, but how well you can manage your resources. Do you have a solid support structure behind you? Family members who are willing and able to help out and/or an employer who is family friendly or are you going to need to pay for child care and occasion respite for Mom?

Are you able to assist in your children's education? Public school isn't what it was. You may want to crack a few books so that you are fit to home school before junior comes along.

How stable are you financially? Kids are expensive, true enough. But if you have put your own childish habits away, and have learned how to budget and make do and mend, then you will be in a better position all the way around.

There are plenty of rich people who have crummy relationships with their kids because they didn't participate and parent. Money meant nothing. On the flip side, there are poor parents who made a point to sit with their kids every night with a book who gave more than material goods ever could.

Make the most with what you have and do your best.

While I appreciate the exploration of using the system to it's fullest extent, this feels dirty

Remind yourself that it's all your money you paid in already.

I was considering this very thing. Marry in Christianity but not under the state. Live with the woman but have your official residence elsewhere. I heard if you set it up right you can get 70k a year in government benefits.
