Should your family have at least three children for whom we pay child allowance, you will also be paid an allowance for a family with many children. This is paid per family, and the recipient is either one of the parents, or a guardian, or the children’s custodian.
- A family with 3 to 6 children is paid 650 euros per month.
- A family with 7 or more children is paid 850 euros per month.
You do not need to apply for the allowance for a family with many children separately. It is important to note that for receiving this allowance, the child allowances for the children in this family must be paid out to one and the same parent.
In this case, the allowance for a family with many children shall be paid in addition to other allowances automatically.
Smooth termination of the payment of allowance for a family with many children.
The allowance for a family with children is paid in full for three children until the oldest child turns 19. Then there will be a gradual reduction of the allowance.
For example, if there remains two children under the age of 19 receiving child support in the family, the support amount for a family with children is 2/3 of the total support amount which is 433.33 euros.
If there is one child under the age of 19 receiving child support in the family, the amount of support for a family with children is 1/3 of the total amount i.e. 216.67 euros.
For triplets and major multiples, payment continues for 3 years at 1/3 after they turn 19.
