Childbirth allowance is a one-time allowance in the amount of 320 euros paid when a child is born.
In the case of triplets (or more siblings), the allowance is 1,000 euros per child (which totals to 3,000 euros in the case of triplets).
Birth allowance is one of the most straightforward types of family allowances. The aim is to help parents cover the costs associated with the birth of a new secular citizen through a one-time grant. Birth allowance is usually paid out on the 8th of the month following the birth.
No application is required for an allowance!
If your family is entitled to the allowance, you will find a benefits offer in our self service portal after you have registered the birth of your child.
If you and your family have moved to Estonia from abroad or you become entitled to an allowance due to, for example, adoption or guardianship or other, please contact us through the self service portal or by e-mail at [email protected].
