Families are particularly affected by Corona. That is why this year, all families who normally receive child benefit payments, will receive a bonus of 300 euros per child. The Bundestag and Bundesrat recently came to this decision. This bonus is to be paid in two installments together with the child benefit: families will receive EUR 150 each in September and October this year. The child bonus is not counted towards the basic security payments. It is mainly aimed at helping families with small and medium income. For higher earners, the bonus is offset against the tax-free child allowance. Further information is available on the website www.bundesregierung.de. There are also answers to questions about how families are supported.
