A draft amendment to the Act on family benefits was submitted to the public consultation. The new assumptions are to specify that the allowance will be paid only to families where the sum of income earned by individual members in the calendar year preceding the year in which the application for benefits was submitted will not exceed PLN 85,528. You will need to provide income statements for individual family members.
In this way, the ministry estimates that around 10% of all born children and their parents will lose their right to the baby benefit. It is forecast that in this way the state budget will save about PLN 32.8 million.
