Amendment on increase of Day-care allowance


A bill that increases the day-care allowance from 60 to 80 percent has been adopted. The recipient of this allowance shall thus receive approximately up to 90% of his net income. The increased allowance will continue to apply to parents taking care of their children up to age of 13 years who cannot attend school and pre-school institutions due to coronavirus measures and caretakers of disabled persons living with them in a common household. The increased allowance will apply for the period from 1st April to 30th June 2020.
