Indemnity is granted to one of the adopters after the court judgement approving the adoption has entered into force. Compensation for the adoption of a child is paid for each child who has been in out-of-home care (institution, foster family, guardianship).

Process description

    The reimbursement must be claimed within 6 months from the date on which the child was transferred in accordance with the decision of the Orphan's Court prior to adoption care. When requesting reimbursement at a later date, it shall be granted only for the previous 6 months before the date of the request for reimbursement.

    • by post.
    An application may be submitted in person to any VSAA customer service centre or to the unified customer service centres of the State and local governments.

    The submission shall indicate the preferred method of receiving the decision.

  2. Receipt of services
    A decision regarding the granting of compensation may be received in person, by post, in the official electronic address or in the portal, in accordance with the type of receipt of the decision indicated in the application.
