Family card Hessen Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

The Hessen Family Card is issued on request to all Hessian families with at least one child under the age of 18 who have their main residence in Hesse. The card is income-independent. Their validity is limited in time. The Hessen Family Card includes accident insurance cover, family services, a parental advisor, numerous and varied benefits for partner companies, as well as tips and assistance on the subject of "taking precautions". The accident insurance cover includes a free basic accident insurance for children from birth to school entry as well as a free basic accident insurance for non-working Hessian parents/single parents who hold a valid family card Hessen and take care of their children themselves in their first 3 years of life. You can always use the services for families when it comes to the care of your little ones or even "bigger ones". These services can be arranged via a hotline that is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Here, holders of the family card Hessen can call, who need a babysitter at short notice. But also au pairs, childcare and household-related services are provided to family card holders. At numerous partner companies and institutions, holders of the Hessen Family Card receive attractive discounts in a wide range of areas. The diverse and imaginative offers range from permanent discounts to varied promotional offers. The Parental Advisor helps family card holders with parenting issues either via a telephone hotline or an online guide and is available with competent staff with advice and assistance. In addition, family card holders receive competent tips on family-relevant topics, e.g. in questions of proper reading education for children and valuable consumer tips from the Hessen Consumer Centre. Under the heading "take precautions", family card holders receive information and assistance on the topics of care, coexistence of older and younger people and the question of how family card holders can deal with it in the event of a need for help or care from their own parents. Even in younger family members, the issue of preventive powers and care and patient care, e.g. in the event of a traffic accident or a serious illness, can play a role. Families will also learn how to benefit from the commitment and experience of older people, or how they can better combine work and care in the event of a situation.
