Child bonus in 2020
Germany is helping all parents with additional money. 300 EUR isn’t much but it doesn’t hurt to help with many child expenses.
As a new measure to mitigate the damages done by the pandemic, Germany introduced an additional one-time child bonus. Parents entitled to kindergeld will receive an additional 300 EUR bonus per child.
At first, reports suggested that the money will be distributed over a 3 month period. This means that each month, in addition to the regular Kindergeld, parents would receive a bonus of 100 EUR for 3 months. Now, it seems it will be a 2-time payment. In September parents can expect their first 150 EUR and in October another 150 EUR.
This bonus will also apply to babies born after that so no need to worry if you’re gonna have kid later this year.
Unmarried parents can have up to 33,900 EUR yearly income to receive this benefit. Married parents can earn double that amount, coming to a 67,800 EUR. This child support bonus is targeting parents with low and middle incomes.
You, as a parent don’t need to take any further steps. Everything will be done automatically and you don’t need to apply anywhere special.
Make sure to follow further news since Germany is preparing really big support for their citizens and we can expect maybe even more help for parents and their children.
