Families with children

print

This page provides an overview of benefits paid to families with children, which are coordinated by the Social Insurance Board.

Estonia’s family benefits are designed to partly cover the costs families incur in caring for, raising and educating their children.

The Parental Benefit Act is designed to contribute to the successful intertwining of work and family life.

Maintenance allowance is a short-term benefit paid by the state to children whose parents are not meeting their obligation to provide for them.
