Child in a single-parent family

Study grant

The National Insurance Institute covers a part of study expenses of single-parent families and families with 4 or more children, who receive a subsistence benefit.

The NII pays these families a study grant at the beginning of every school year, for children between age 6 and 18. The grant is transferred to the bank account on which child allowance is paid.

Before the start of every school year, dates of birth of the children eligible for study grants for the current year are published.

Maintenance allowance

The parent who has custody of the child may receive maintenance allowance from the NII if a court judgment was ruled in favor of the child, which set forth maintenance allowances for the child, which are due by the other parent
