Starting this year, the new parents will no longer receive the allowance of 800 lei for raising the child up to two years, respectively up to three years, in the case of the disabled child, but 600 lei.
The provision is part of the emergency ordinance 148/2005, which entered into force on January 1, 2006. However, according to the same legislative act, the allowance for children who meet the above conditions will be 200 lei, instead of 24 of law. Basically, the same Marie, with another hat, only if, until now, the amount of the state allowance and the allowance for the raising of the child reached 824 lei, from January 1, 2007, it will be 24 lei less, that is, 800 lei.
Why this measure was necessary, explains Maria Muga, State Secretary in the Ministry of Labor, Social Solidarity and Family. "The amount that the respective parents will receive will be 800 lei, but the amount of the two social benefits has changed. This decision was taken so that all children (including those whose parents are not working) can benefit from a allowance of 200 lei, instead of 24 lei, as they had so far ". Only the parents who have been working for at least 12 months, in the last year prior to the birth of the child, will continue to benefit from the childcare allowance. Also from January 1, 2007, the amount of the monthly incentive for the persons who return to work during the period for raising the child is also changed.
Thus, they will receive 100 lei, instead of 300 lei, as they received so far. In this situation, the payment of the child growth allowance is suspended. The applications for granting the above rights and the documents attesting the fulfillment of the legal conditions for granting them are submitted to the mayoralty of the commune, the city, the municipality, respectively the sectors of the municipality of Bucharest, on which the applicant's domicile resides.
