Single parent's child allowance

You are entitled to the single parent child allowance should your child’s birth certificate or the population register lack data about the child’s father, or if your child’s other parent has officially been declared a fugitive.

The single parent child allowance is 80 euros per month.

For whom?

We pay it in the same period as child allowance, if your child’s birth certificate or the population register lack data about the child’s father, or if your child’s other parent has officially been declared a fugitive.

This allowance shall be paid starting from childbirth, or from the day the parent was declared a fugitive.

The single parent child allowance payment is stopped in the following cases:

  • Acceptance of paternal filiation (under the parents’ joint application)
  • Establishment of paternal filiation during court proceedings
  • A new parent would be added as a result of adoption
  • Child’s father or a second parent would be added to the Population Register
  • The Police and Border Guard Board officially stops the other parent’s search proceedings;  
  • A survivor’s pension is appointed to the child for the other parent:
  • A survivor’s pension is appointed to the child due to the loss of the single parent’s new spouse, or the child’s step parent.

How to get?


If you are entitled to the allowance, you will find a benefits offer in our self service portal after you have registered the birth of your child.

No application is required for an allowance!
