Parental allowance permit Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

The parental allowance is paid to the father and mother for a maximum of 14 months, both of which can freely divide the period among themselves. One parent can receive parental allowance for a maximum of twelve months alone, and two more months are reserved for the other parent. Furthermore, for the receipt of parental allowance for a total of 14 months, a parent has a reduction in earned income for at least two months.

As of 01.07.2015, the "Parental Benefit Plus" will make parental allowance and parental leave much more flexible than before.

For each sibling, the parental allowance increases, as does the Parental Benefit Plus, by 300.00 Euros per month.
