Child-Care benefits

Parents who have to interrupt their working activity for the care of their minor child who suffers from heavy health problems either due to illness or accident, have a right to receive child-care benefits of 14 weeks.

The benefits are 80 percent of the salary before the beginning of the right of child-care benefits. Maximally 98 daily allowances are paid within a qualifying period of 18 months. If both parents are entitled to benefit, they can split the receipt of benefits (for example 2 x 49 days).
