What is parental grant?
How do we calculate the parental grant?
We calculate the size of the parental grant on the basis of whether you were studying full-time or part-time, and if so, which part-time percentage you had, in the four months preceding the birth.
Whether you go on leave after the birth or continue studying does not affect the parental grant.
Students in upper secondary education or primary school with statutory rights as a young person receive a full parental grant even if they are taking part-time education.
Upper secondary education or apprentice
The size of the parental grant depends on whether you receive social security benefits and pension benefits or have an apprentice salary, and on the income of an eventual spouse or cohabitant. If you are receiving transitional benefit, you are only entitled to parental grant if you are above the age of 18, and in this case you will receive a reduced grant amount.
