If you are the guardian of underage children, you can apply for child increase of the daily allowance.
The conditions and amounts of child increase
If you receive earnings-related daily allowance and are the guardian of a child under 18, we can pay you daily allowance plus child increase.
The amount of child increase is 5,28 € for one child, a total of 7,76 € for two children, and a total of 10,00 € for three or more children.
How to apply for child increase
Enter the dates of birth of the children in the application form in the field where children under 18 are listed. That is enough. We compare the information submitted by you to the details in the Population Information System. When all information matches, we can pay the child increase.
We get the information on children from the Population Information System rather quickly, but sometimes we have to pay first the daily allowance without child support supplement and the supplement retroactively once the child is shown in the Population Information System. If you wish, you can send the child’s birth certificate to speed up the processing of your application.
You can also apply for child support supplement on a separate request, e.g. by sending a message through OmaYTK.
