When you adopt a child, you are entitled to a one-time adoption allowance in the amount of 320 euros per each adopted child.
The allowance is paid to the adopter from whom the child does not descend, and who is not the spouse to the child’s other parent. The adoption allowance is not paid if the family has received the childbirth allowance for the same child.
To receive the childbirth allowance, file an application in self-service, by e-mail [email protected] or turn to our customer service.
