What childbirth benefits Germany provides for Ukrainian women
Many of the benefits that Germany grants its citizens when they give birth are also available to Ukrainian women. The main condition is legal status. For example, temporary protection in connection with Russian aggression.
Refugees from Ukraine who give birth in Germany are entitled to the following social benefits:
- Health care: Access to antenatal and postnatal care as well as access to paediatric care for the child.
- Cash benefits: Financial support for basic needs such as food and housing can be provided through programmes such as the Asylbewerberleistungsgesetz.
- Childcare services: Access to childcare facilities, including pre-school programmes, may be provided by the state or private organisations.
- Education: Access to free primary and secondary education for the child.
- Integration services: Access to language courses and vocational training programmes to help refugees integrate into German society.
For all citizens, Germany provides childcare subsidies through programmes such as Elterngeld Plus, which provides financial support for families with children up to 24 months of age.
The government offers a number of tax credits for families, including the Tax Credit for Families with Children and the Working Families Tax Credit.
Note: The specific details of these benefits may vary depending on a person's legal status, length of stay in Germany and other factors. It is important to check with your local authorities or organisations for up-to-date information.
