If you become a mother, you can receive maternity benefit during the protection periods before and after childbirth and for the day of childbirth. You can apply for maternity benefit either from your statutory health insurance fund or from the Federal Social Security Office (BAS).
If you as parents earn enough income for yourself, but the income is not enough or only just enough for the whole family, you can apply for the child supplement.
