Support for families with multiple children (from triplets)


The birth of multiples presents families with special challenges: The care and supervision of infants and toddlers is usually difficult for the affected families to cope without support. In this way, additional funds can also help parents in this special phase of life to cope with everyday life and to support their children. In this way, they can make small purchases or hire helpers in the period after birth, if necessary for short-term relief.

The state of Lower Saxony therefore supports families with multiples (from triplets), who have their main residence in Lower Saxony at the time of birth or at the time of school enrolment of the multiples and live with the multiples in the same household, with financial support per child for birth and school enrolment in the amount of € 250.00 each as well as by taking over the honorary sponsorship by the Lower Saxony Minister for Social Affairs, Health and gender equality.

The responsibility lies with the Lower Saxony State Office for Social Affairs, Youth and Family.
