So far, 380 residents have received childcare benefits or sickness support benefits for childcare, introduced last November due to the pandemic, according to the State Social Insurance Agency. The average amount of the paid benefit was a little over 20 euros per day and calculate it based on the number of calendar days. Last year 334 people received it, this year – 46 people.

Parents can take this allowance if their child, under ten years old, cannot attend kindergarten or is forced to study remotely. In addition, parents of children with disabilities under the age of 18 who cannot attend care or day centers can also qualify for the allowance.

The benefit is 60% of the average income for the last 12 months, which ends two months before benefits are awarded. It is important to understand that income takes into account the amount on which social tax was paid.

From January 1 to June 30, 2021, the number of calendar days and the number of receipts is not limited. The support allowance is provided to parents for the period for which there is a certificate from an educational institution, a certificate from an employer or a certificate from a care center.

Only one parent, or a guardian, or a foster parent, or an employed or self-employed foster parent who cannot work remotely can receive benefits.

Regardless of the number of children in care, only one allowance is granted per applicant.

The sickness benefit is not subject to personal income tax and compulsory social insurance contributions.
