Parental Allowance Plus

Parents who work part-time after the birth of their child can extend the reference period of the parental allowance. This rule applies to parents whose children are born from 1 July 2015. The Parental Benefit Plus replaces the lost income depending on the advance income at 65 to 100 percent – just like the previous parental allowance.

Monthly, the Parental Benefit Plus amounts to a maximum of half of the parental allowance that parents without part-time income would receive after birth.
