Government raises parental benefits

PARENTAL benefits, which in Slovakia are paid monthly until the children of the recipients are three years of age, will increase by Sk210 to Sk4,440 per month as of September 1, according to a new directive from the Labour Ministry.

"The increase in the parental benefit will not increase the budgetary expenditures of the ministry this year, as the ministry intends to cover the increase by reallocating existing funds," read a ministry statement.

To pay for the increase in benefits, the ministry will need an additional Sk85.2 million by the end of the year.
