Social Support Benefits

The parental allowance is a type of state social benefit paid by the state to the entitled person for providing due care to the child. Upon meeting certain conditions, even a foreigner with a temporary or permanent residence on the territory of the Slovak Republic is entitled to receive the allowance. 

In order to cover the costs necessary for child care, the state contributes to the parent or to a natural person to whose care the child was placed by means of the child care allowance. Upon meeting certain conditions even a foreigner with a temporary or permanent residence on the territory of the Slovak Republic is entitled to receive the allowance. 

A tax bonus constitutes the amount of tax benefit paid to the taxpayer for a maintained child living with the taxpayer in a common household. Upon meeting certain conditions even a foreigner with a temporary or permanent residence on the territory of the Slovak Republic is entitled to claim the benefit. 

Child allowance is a repeated state social benefit, the purpose of which is to contribute to the education and nutrition of a dependent child. 

The supplementary child allowance is a type of state social benefit paid by the state to the entitled person for raising and nurturing of the dependent child, in relation to which, the tax bonus cannot be claimed. Upon meeting certain conditions even a foreigner with a permanent residence on the territory of the Slovak Republic is entitled to receive the allowance. 

Childbirth allowance is a one-time state social benefit whose purpose is to cover the expenditures related to the security needs of a newborn.

The allowance for multiple children born at the same time is a type of state social benefit granted by the state once per year in order to cover increased costs arising as a result of due care for multiple-born children. Upon meeting certain conditions even a foreigner with a permanent residence on the territory of the Slovak Republic is entitled to receive the benefit.
