State child support to rise to Sk570 from September

State child support will increase from the current Sk540 to Sk570 from this September, Labour Ministry spokesman Michal Stuška informed the SITA newswire.

State child support will increase from the current Sk540 to Sk570 from this September, Labour Ministry spokesman Michal Stuška informed the SITA newswire.

"When drawing up this proposal, we took into consideration the percentage of increase of the subsistence level, as well as other social benefits and the realistic possibilities of the state budget," said Stuška.

The subsistence level for an adult person will grow 5 percent from July to Sk5,390, so the Labour Ministry has proposed increasing child support by 5.5 percent.

The proposal has yet to be approved by the Cabinet.

Child support was last increased from Sk500 to Sk540 in September 2004. Although the Labour Ministry originally proposed to increase it by Sk10 to Sk550 from September 2007, Labour Minister Viera Tomanová did not submit that proposal to the Cabinet. SITA
