Single Child Allowance

The single child allowance for dependent children will start in March 2022

The single child allowance has been talked about for quite some time now and finally the time is here. The single child allowance for dependent children will start in March 2022 with applications starting from January 1. Let’s now take a glance at what it is and how it works, who will benefit from it, on which children the new allowance will be taken and how to present the request.

WHAT IS IT?

The single child allowance is a new measure introduced by the government that will take the place of the deductions for family expenses referring to children, allowances for the family unit(ANF), bonuses for children (Baby Bonus, Mom Tomorrow Bonus) into one single allowance which will vary on the basis of the Isee of the family unit and the degree of disability a child. It will be paid by INPS upon request by the interested parties. These are families with children up to 21 years of age dependent on their parents. Pregnant mothers can also receive the allowance from the end of the seventh month of pregnancy.

HOW MUCH IS THE ALLOWANCE?

For children up to 18 years of age, the amount of the single allowance for each of them is equal to:

  • 175 euros per month (Isee within the threshold of 15,000 euros)
  • To scale from 175 to 50 euros per month (Isee above 15,000 and up to 40,000 euros).
  • 50 euros per month per child with Isee above 40,000 euros.

For families with three or more dependent children, the amounts are increased for all children (even the first two) to an extent of 85 euros for the first Isee bracket (up to 15,000 euros), decreasing from 85 to 15 euros for the second bracket and 15 euros for the third and last bracket.

Increases also foreseen according to the severity of handicap for disabled minors. This surplus is equal to 105 euros per month more for disability with the absence of self-sufficiency of the invalid. For the severely disabled, on the other hand, the monthly increase is 95 euros, while for average disabilities it is 85 euros. For disabled adult children, on the other hand, the increase is equal to 50 euros per month, but only up to 21 years of age. For disabled children over the age of 21, however, the allowance is paid to the extent of:

  • 85 euros per month (Isee within the threshold of 15,000 euros);
  • To scale from 85 to 25 euros per month (Isee above 15,000 and up to 40,000 euros).
  • 25 euros per month per child with Isee above 40,000 euros.

Surcharges also foreseen for families with both working parents (30 euros per month more for each child) or with families with four or more children (100 euros per month in total). Finally, with young mothers (under 21 years of age), an increase of 20 euros per month per child.

WHO CAN APPLY?

This new measure is opened to the following groups of people:

  • Italians;
  • Foreigners from an EU Member State;
  • Non-EU foreigners with the right of residence or with the right of permanent residence;
  • Non-EU citizens with a long-term residence permit
  • Non-EU foreigners who have a work or research permit with a duration of more than six months;
  • Foreigners with residence in Italy for at least two years.

Residence and domicile, including tax in Italy, are therefore necessary in order to have access to the single allowance for children.
