Parental allowance calculation

Parental allowance is based on the amount of the monthly adjusted net income earned by the caring parent before the birth of the child and which is eliminated after birth. The parental allowance is at least 300.00 euros and a maximum of 1,800.00 euros per month. In the case of receipt of unemployment benefit II ("Hartz IV"), social assistance or child supplement, the parental allowance is counted as income.
