Financial support for families (finanzielle Unterstützung für Familien)

These German state benefits help to support parents and families financially:

  • Child benefit (Kindergeld)
  • Parental allowance (Elterngeld)
  • Maternal allowance (Mutterschaftsleistungen)
  • Other benefits e.g. for families in need

Whether you are entitled to these benefits depends on your type of residence permit and whether you are employed or are a scholarship holder. The Welcome Centre offers assistance with the application process.
