The amount of the benefit, if the recipient works and is not on the parental leave

The recipient of the parents’ benefit, who resumes work, discontinuing the parental leave, or resumes earning income as a self-employed, the benefit is paid in the amount of 30% of the benefit granted.

Also for a person who, on the day of requesting the benefit, is not on the parental leave or earns income as a self-employed person the benefit is calculated in the amount of 30% of the benefit granted (depending on what duration of receiving the benefit has been chosen by the recipient – until the child reaches the age of 1, in the amount of 60% of the average wage; or until the child reaches the age of 1.5, in the amount of 43.75% of the average wage).

For example: the parents’ benefit is granted for the period until the child reaches the age of 1, in the amount of 60% of the recipient’s average wage subject to insurance contributions – 15 euros per calendar day.

After discontinuation of parental leave and resuming work, the benefit will be recalculated in the amount of 30% of 15 euros = 4.50 euros per calendar day.
