Parental allowance Plus authorisation

Parental Benefit Plus is paid for twice the period and can be applied for for births from 1 July 2015. This means in concrete terms that 1 month of parental allowance corresponds to 2 parental allowance plus months.

If the parents share the care of their child and work in parallel for 4 months between 25 and 30 hours per week, they will also receive the partnership bonus in the form of 4 additional parental allowance plus months each. The eligibility requirements must be met by both parents for 4 consecutive months of life.
