For existing beneficiaries of the large family allowance, the payment will be made by 31 January, and for new ones when they meet the condition for a large family.
The regular allowance for a large family will otherwise be paid as usual, in the month of April.
At the time of the epidemic, the childcare allowance to which children in need of special care are entitled is also 100 euros higher. The settlement of the higher allowance for October, November and December 2020 in the total amount of EUR 300 will be carried out by 31 January.
